What To Do

Any day, any season, you'll run out of time before you run out of things to do. The Kennebunks is a destination rich in history, culture and beauty that rewards visitors with world-class cuisine and accommodations, art galleries, boutique shops, sightseeing, sandy beaches and a variety of recreational activities.

The most common question we get at the Chamber is, “How do I get to Walker’s Point?” The summer home of President George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara, Walker’s Point has been visited by presidents, foreign heads of state and celebrities alike over the years. More importantly, though, it has been a haven for generations of Bush family members, who have enjoyed idyllic summer days away from the pressures of the outside world.

Walker’s Point is not open to the public, but you can drive by, or stop briefly at the designated parking overlook to snap a quick picture. Vehicles may only stop in the designated area; no stopping on the road is permitted. To get to Walker’s Point, take Ocean Avenue from Dock Square, approximately two miles. The ride alone is beautiful, with the Atlantic crashing against the rocks along the right side of the road.

Just before you reach Walker’s Point you’ll see the special overlook spot (please obey the rules posted on the sign) on the right. Also overlooking the house and on the right is the Anchor to Windward, the town’s special tribute to “41” installed in 2009.
