  • An old fort in Portland/South Portland Harbor. There is also a very nice lighthouse close to the park. Not many parking places. Well worth the visit.  more »
  • This site is buried in behind the community college with almost no directional signage. Even worse, there does not appear to be any parking other than for the college.  more »
  • I love lighthouses. It was a nice walk to the lighthouse. Was fun walking and hopping on the rocks which led to the lighthouse. Parking is very limited but we parked little far away on the street and walked.
  • One of my favorite places in Maine to just chill out with my family. The new wall is absolutely cool!! And the stairway to the water is cool!!!
