Surrounding Kennebunkport Marina is a town awash in centuries of nautical history; the community also boasts a spot on AOL Travel's list of the 10 Best Beach Towns in America. The marina contributes to its pristine environs with new docks, an outdoor fireplace, and a riverside courtyard where guests can lounge on adirondack chairs. From the docks, which have hookups for water and 30- and 50-amp service, boaters can captain their vessels down the Kennebunk River or travel one-quarter mile to open ocean waters. Year-round storage keeps ships protected during winter or transatlantic spitball wars, and spring engine commissions by certified technicians prep boats for the sailing season.

Those without their own watercraft can join the Kennebunkport Boat Club, which grants members of any skill level access to a quartet of boats that range from 15 to 26 feet. Additionally, the store offers powerboat, canoe, and kayak rentals, and reservations of the Captain's Cottage make lodgers feel more nautical than tying their shoelaces in bowline knots.

When Broadway showman Walter Hartwig and his wife Maude opened the Ogunquit Playhouse in 1933, they likely never realized they were establishing a theatrical legacy. Then again, they might have had an inkling—from the very beginning, the playhouse hosted performances from luminaries including Ethel Barrymore, Bette Davis and Walter Matthau. Even today, it’s not unusual to see famous names and attached talents treading its historic boards, such as Stefanie Powers from Hart to Hart or Charles Shaughnessy from The Nanny. It’s all part of the theater’s mission to provide the best shows possible while promoting the local arts. Along with star-studded Broadway musicals, the stage hosts dance shows, children’s theater, and acting workshops for the next generation of spotlight-stealers.

Wonder Mountain Family Fun Park sternly rebuffs boredom with two mini-golf courses and a challenging human maze. Adventurers can negotiate the twisting turns, dead ends, and elevated checkpoints of the Treasure Trap ($5/person for ages 5+) in less than 10 minutes to enter weekly drawings for cash and T-shirts or to outrun overzealous Pac-Men. Alternatively, opt for a round of mini golf ($10/adult; $8/senior or child ages 5–12) on one of two courses strewn with lush foliage, flowing waterfalls, and muttering streams. Send dimpled balls spinning across the Mountain Mania course, recently rebuilt with five new hole layouts, or test your mettle on the Nautical Nightmare course, whose challenging holes may be better suited for teens and adults than youngsters or those who depend on holes-in-one for life force.

American Sailor Clothing gussies up seaside trendsetters of all ages with sporty designer duds and breezy, seafaring accessories. Bedeck sun-soaked beach bods in stylish apparel from top wonder-weavers such as Tommy Bahama, OluKai, Sperry Top-Siders, and more, some of who are locally exclusive to American Sailor's elegant aisles. Mini mariners and their dapper progenitors can cavort in the brisk coastal zephyrs in T-shirts ($14.95+) and shore-striding sandals ($35+), and sweatshirts ($49.95+) warm up late-night beachcombers seeking the gentle echo of a passive-aggressive kumbaya sing-off around the campfire. Resort shirts add a style-stirring spark to commonplace clubhouses ($74+), and visitors can illuminate outfits with a bevy of accessories that include hats, towels, handbags ($8+), and Smith Optic sunglasses.

The teachers at Nataraja School of Yoga certainly acknowledge and harp on the importance of alignment, posture, and breath. But, to them, the ability to reconnect the mind and body is yoga’s most powerful tool. All of the instructors have passed Iyengar-influenced training in both poses and philosophy, though they lead such class styles as beginner yoga, Very Gentle yoga for seniors, and advanced practice for descendants of the Gumby family. The studio also hosts Zumba classes, a faster-paced dance-cardio workout that sometimes includes weighted sticks for added toning.

Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
