The charming Maine village of Kennebunk is quintessential coastal New England. A drive through the town along US Route 1 is lovely as you pass by the shops and restaurants along the flower lined streets.
A sad reminder of the times we live in the flags were at half mast because of another mass shooting.
By all means stop at the restaurants and shops and if you have time the beach is also quite nice. Take advantage of the sand you will get more and more rocks as you proceed further north up the coast of Maine.
