Merriam Webster defines souvenir as “something kept as a reminder of a place one has visited.” When you have a trip as great as your stay at The Nonantum Resort, you have to make sure your souvenir levels up. Some travelers like to collect the same type of item from each vacation destination, such as shot glasses or mugs. Others keep their eyes peeled for something more niche, like a locally-made artwork or pottery. Whether you like to go the traditional route or unconventional, we’ve rounded up the best places to snag your souvenir. Check out these souvenir shops in Kennebunkport Maine to find your perfect take-home item to commemorate your time at The Nonantum Resort.
