Another excellent choice the The Galleries at Morning Walk. This is a cottage style community where lots of local artists and even jewelers will congregate to entice you with works of art. This is an excellent opportunity to shop for a true taste of the Kennebunks.
In downtown Kennebunk, there is a new gallery called The Hive which included featured artists. Not only is there lots of contemporary art work to view, but the Hive will also host local bands and hold concerts on most weekends; complete with hors d’oeurves and a bar!
If you are going to the lower village of Kennebunk, then you may also wish to check out the River Tree Arts.
