Fort Williams was a military outpost for coastal defence serving the United States from the Spanish-American War to the Korean War. Fort Williams is also the home of Portland Head Light commissioned by George Washington in 1791--the oldest lighthouse in Maine and one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. You will also visit the charming coastal village of Kennebunkport, get there via a scenic cruise and view stunning Federal- and Victorian-style homes built by wealthy sea captains and merchants in the 1700s and 1800s.

Pass by two of Maine's most famous homes--the Wedding Cake House and Walker's Point, the Bush estate and former Summer White House where world leaders often visited. You will have a chance to stretch your legs in the center of town at Dock Square, where art galleries, antique shops, and upscale stores make a charming town center.

Also included is a lobster roll lunch at the Nonantum Resort, one of the oldest and most beautiful New England-style inns in Kennebunkport on the shores of the Kennebunkport River.
