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.

Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Fore River Sanctuary, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Rising Tide Brewing Company, have some family-friendly fun at Muse Paintbar, and sample the fine beverages at New England Distilling.
