The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Relive Summer Camp in the Kennebunks


4. Insider’s Tip

The Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a secluded place for picnics and public events.  

If you’re in the mood for a picnic, skip the crowded spots in town for a more secluded experience ten minutes away inside the Wells Reserve at Laudholm ($4 admission, which partially funds the Laudholm Trust). Formerly a working farm, this research site is home to grassy fields, estuaries, and a beach that are open to the public but never bogged down with crowds. Before you go, pick up sandwiches and drinks at HB Provisions, and be sure to give yourself enough time to enjoy the tranquil setting before the trails close at sunset.
