Kennebunkport/Portland-- Opinions Please

Jump to last reply

We are starting our trip up the coast with 3 nights in Portland or Kennebunkport (not sure which will be our base) before moving on to Camden and Bar Harbor.

Is this a good idea? I have read reports that Kennebunkport and Ogunquit are overrun with tourist shops. I have also read mixed reviews re Portland-- some say it's artsy and others say it's rundown. Help please.
