Local Lifestyle

 
Many of the community members in Kittery work in education or other professional vocations. They pride themselves on offering excellent schools. Though the suburban-type settings may house many academic types, they still know how to relax and enjoy nightlife and physical activities. The downtown area is locally loved and also appreciated by visitors.
 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

 
Like most coastal towns in Maine, Kittery's seafood restaurants are plentiful. Who can resist Maine lobster? Chauncey Creek started serving this seafood delicacy in the 1930s, and it's still one of the best places to enjoy delicious lobster in Maine. Robert's Maine Grill is another mainstay for lobster, clam chowder, local craft beers, and other locally sourced, farm-to-table cuisine.  Frisbee's Wharf at Pepperell Cove also serves your seafood favorites like fish, chips, and lobster. They'll also make you a pretty darn good burger. Black Birch just underwent a major renovation, making this modern comfort food establishment even more inviting. They also serve beer, wine, and your favorite cocktail. And, if you're in the mood for pizza, you've got to try When Pigs Fly for their woodfired pizza.
 
The Kittery Outlets, also known as The Golden Mile, is a fantastic place to shop. It offers almost anything you could want, plus places to grab a bite and refuel for more shopping. If you're looking for a unique shopping experience, try the Tayla Mac Boutique, owned by Mikayla Parsons. The shop is filled with eclectic clothing and gifts. This boutique also features local artisans, and you might even get to say hello to Leo, the official shop dog.
 

Things to Do

 
The diverse lifestyle and interests of the residents of Kittery set the stage for activities for everyone to enjoy. Events such as the Kittery Block Party in the middle of June showcase restaurants, bands, and other artists and vendors throughout the area. Kittery loves celebrating the arts, so they do it for an entire month, from the middle of July until the middle of August, at the Kittery Art Festival.
 
Fort Foster Park remains open almost every day in the summer and only on the weekends after Labor Day. Not only do they hold a variety of events at the park, but it also provides a habitat and haven for endangered species and a collection of native flora and fauna. They even sell season passes during the summer months.
 
If you're someone who seeks out the best craft beer in the area, don't miss Tributary Brewery. Owner Tod Mot has been a master brewer for over two decades. His passion and commitment to incorporating nature into his brews pays off in some award-winning beers like Harpoon IPA and Great Russian Stout.
