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.
Bowdoin College Museum of Art and Farnsworth Art Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Echo Lake State Park and Giant's Stairs Trail. Explore Portland's surroundings by going to Camden Hills State Park (in Camden), Maine State Museum (in Augusta) and Belfast Historical Society & Museum (in Belfast). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, examine the collection at Owls Head Transportation Museum, kick back and relax at Reid State Park, and grab your bike and head to Eastern Promenade.
