Everyone recognizes the name Kennebunkport as the upscale community where former president George W. Bush spent his summers -- but Kennebunkport has a lot to offer the rest of us as well. Located along Maine's Southern Coast, a big chunk of Kennebunkport's three-mile Goose Rocks Beach (locally called GRB) is open to the public, while a portion of it is private. Parking where there is public access is limited which means it doesn't get overly crowded, which makes it a real find. Kennebunkport Marina has fishing boat, canoe and kayak rentals.
