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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Just Us Chickens Gallery (in Kittery), Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway & Ogunquit Beach) and Georgetown Pottery (in Georgetown). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, head outdoors with Portland Pirates, and visit a coastal fixture at Portland Head Light.

The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
On the 9th (Sun), hike the day away at Highline Trail. And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, and get great views at Jackson Glacier Overlook.
