Kennebunkport and Portland Maine New England
Our Caravan New England Vacation includes guided tours of several famous Atlantic seaside towns including Martha’s Vineyard, Newport in Rhode Island, and Mystic in Connecticut. Two other major highlights on this New England Fall Foliage tour are the resort towns of Kennebunkport and Portland Maine.
Guests of Caravan’s all-inclusive vacation packages in New England enjoy all itinerary meals, accommodations, ground transportation, airport transfers, and all itinerary excursions.
Portland Maine Waterfront
The “Old Port” or Portland’s Waterfront, is known for its 19th century cobblestone streets, brick buildings, and fishing piers. As tourists wander the area they will discover countless boutiques, galleries, and exceptional restaurants. Portland is a “working waterfront,” which means that there is still an active marine economy with wharves and piers, including:

Town of Kennebunkport Maine
Situated in York County and with a population of just 3,500 people, to call Kennebunkport a quaint coastal town is a near perfect description. Dock Square is a popular attraction in this small seaside tourist town, offering visitors plenty of souvenir shops and art galleries to browse. The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library and the boats parked along the Kennebunk River are also famous attractions in this little town on Maine’s Atlantic coast.
Guests of Caravan Tours are treated to a one-night stay at the Nonantum Resort. This spacious four-story boutique New England style hotel includes grounds that overlook the Kennebunk River. Since 1884, this resort hotel has entertained and hosted guests from all over the world and provides the perfect way to enjoy the Atlantic Coast, with the center of Kennebunkport just a short walk away.
Lobster in Maine
If there is one thing the Atlantic coastal state of Maine is known for is its lobster. Chefs and food connoisseurs around the world recognize Maine as having some of the world’s sweetest and most flavorful lobster!
Nearly every restaurant you visit will offer some form of fresh lobster on their menu – whether it’s lobster bisque, lobster rolls, or any other plethora of gourmet lobster dishes. Lobster is a crucial part of the economy for Maine as many coastal communities in the area rely on the lobster harvest to make a living.
All Caravan Tour guests spend their last evening in Kennebunkport, Maine, enjoying a delicious lobster dinner before heading off to Boston MA for the last day of the tour.

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
