You are able to view President Bush's Summer home from Ocean Avenue but there no access to the property. What a wonderful view, it is no wonder the family spends their Summers in Kennebunkport.

Great view of the Bush compound, beautiful drive all along the Maine coastline. Kennebunkport is such a quaint New England town. I see why the Bush family love this area.

Overlooking Mrs. Bush's home (inherited from her grandmother I was told, is a nice stop on your tour of the peninsula. Fine jagged rocks. A seat but you may only park 15 minutes.
