You can see where Babe Ruth hit his last home run as a Red Sox player at Goodall Park in Sanford. This former woolen and textile mill town is situated along the Mousam River, 13 miles west of Kennebunk. In the summer, you can cheer for the Sanford Mainers, a New England Collegiate Baseball team that plays at the historic ballpark.
You can also walk along the trails that crisscross Sanford past riverfront views, restored historic homes, parks and playgrounds. In the warmer months, you can enjoy a community festival at Gowen Memorial Park or test your skills at one of Sanford's golf courses.
