Kennebunkport is the perfect beach town. In the summer there's cute shops, great restaurants, and amazing beaches. During the winter, the cold of Maine doesn't stop anyone with the town's annual tree lighting and Christmas festivities that attract thousands. The quiet beach town is amazing all times of the year. Aside from the tourist attractions, the public schools are one of the best in Maine, everyone is so nice, and it's a wonderful town for families.
