Portland

The Forest City

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Walker's Point and St. Ann's Episcopal Church. Take a break from the city and head to Casco Bay Islands and Wells Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portland: Footbridge Beach (in Ogunquit) and Ocean Ave (in Kennebunkport). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Victoria Mansion, enjoy breathtaking views from Portland Observatory, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Allagash Brewing Company.
