Maine's biggest and perhaps most vibrant city, Portland was established as a fishing village in 1633 and grew to become New England's largest port.
On the 3rd (Fri), explore the world behind art at Portland Museum of Art and then see the interesting displays at Portland Head Light. Here are some ideas for day two: tour the pleasant surroundings at Old Orchard Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Wells Beach.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Portland trip planner .

Newark to Portland is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Newark in August, with highs in Portland at 79°F and lows at 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can go by car to Bar Harbor.
