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.
Bring the kids along to Ogunquit Beach and Wells Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway & Perkins Cove). There's much more to do: stroll through Old Orchard Beach, sample the tasty concoctions at Allagash Brewery, see the interesting displays at Portland Head Light, and enjoy the sea views from Nubble Lighthouse.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Portland driving holiday planner .

Monroe to Portland is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Monroe to Portland due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Monroe in August, with highs in Portland at 79°F and lows at 59°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can drive to Bar Harbor.
