Gateway to Maine

ftmcclaryKittery is the gateway to the state of Maine. Kittery, just below the popular summer resort town of York Harbor, is most famous for its Factory Outlet Stores that line Route 1. There are over 120 shops of designer brands at huge savings, plus there is the historic store - Kittery Trading Post where you can find everything from hunting and camping gear to the latest ski and snowboard equipment.

But Kittery is so much more than shops and seafood restaurants. Kittery is the oldest incorporated town in Maine, with miles of scenic coastal beauty along Maine's Route 103. Kittery is home to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, and has a proud maritime past dating back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.

ftmcclaryFort McClary and Fort Foster are open for exploring and perfect for a family visit, a picnic, and a peek at the historic military bunkers, plus a great view of Portsmouth Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.

Kittery offers accommodations from motels and hotels to cozy inns and bed and breakfasts.

You will find your Maine lobster feast overlooking the waterfront, whether you prefer a clam shack at Kittery Point to upscale cuisine at Anneke Jans.
