Ocean Avenue is great. The best views in all of Maine. Many stops along the way with benches to perch on and just chill. There is an ocean walk you can do in nearby Kennebunkport that is a must see, ask the locals. Fresh lobsters available everywhere, lots of gift shops, parking can be a little bit of a challenge...

Stayed at relatives home on Ocean Avenue. Wonderful walks into Downtown Kennebunkport and out to the Bush Estate at Walker's Point.

Short but beautiful, this is a truly iconic coastal Maine drive. Beaches, cliffs, ocean waves, seaside mansions, harbors filled with sail boats, and old churches, this is Maine at its finest!

This is a great place to take a walk and to stop, take in the scenery and a photo or two. If you drive this, it is easy to do during the off season but if you drive this on a sunny summer day, expect it to be busy and difficult to find quiet places to pull over.

We were on a tour bus out of Boston. Beautiful drive which was well worth the time out of Boston to see.

This is a lovely coastal drive down a winding road dotted with extravagant homes (including the Bushes) and affording a close-up view of Maine's magnificent rocky shoreline. A must-do!

What a wonderful marriage of rugged ocean views, sea spray and (gulp) real-estate. There are adequate pull offs for gawkers and dwadlers.
