Spring is a fascinating season, here on the Maine coast. The weather is warming with green and blossoms beginning to show, yet you can often still go skiing. Sure, there are fewer big festivals and events than in summer – but you also won’t have to fight the crowds. If anything, Kennebunkport in spring offers more flexibility than the other seasons.
One of the big pluses about the Maine coast is that our scenery never goes away. Even the greyest, coldest winter days can seem magical when you’re on the rocky shore looking out over the Gulf of Maine. Come springtime, well, it only gets better. Plus, as I said above, you won’t be fighting crowds for the view.
Spring is a great time to get out and about on our beautiful lakes, rivers, and ocean. Coastal Maine Kayak is just one of many companies offering Kennebunkport kayak tours. Get out and explore Cape Porpoise Lighthouse, the Mousam River, the Kennebunk River, and Casco Bay on a kayak.
Looking to see some amazing, aquatic wildlife? First Chance Whale Watch is just one of many local touring companies offering Kennbunkport whale watching tours.
Speaking of wildlife, Kennebunkport in spring is also an ideal location for bird watching and nature photography. We’re surrounded by countless nature preserves and wildlife refuges. Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, Wells Reserve at Laudholm, and the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust all offer unspoiled wildlife and trails for hiking.
Hoping to get in a game or two of golf? Kennebunkport has a variety of golf courses offering greens for players of all abilities. The Cape Arundel Golf Club, Webhannet Golf Club, and Hillcrest Golf, all come to mind.
Not an outdoorsy sort or concerned about inclement weather? Not to worry! Kennebunkport is loaded with excellent art galleries, shops, and restaurants. And once again, because it’s spring and not summer, getting a table at a popular restaurant like On The Marsh Bistro or Federal Jack’s is a snap, rather than a wait.
