Portland

Portland ©
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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portland: Fisherman's Walk (in York Harbor), Ogunquit (Ogunquit Beach, Perkins Cove, & more) and Mast Cove Galleries (in Kennebunkport). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Portland Head Light, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Allagash Brewery, kick back and relax at Old Orchard Beach, and enjoy the sea views from Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse.

Plan my Portland trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Portland. In February, daytime highs in Portland are 35°F, while nighttime lows are 16°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Wed) so you can drive to Bar Harbor.
