Local Accommodations & Attractions

Portland, Maine’s largest city and nestled on the southern coast, sits on a peninsula with views of Casco Bay to the south and east, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the north and west. The city boasts a vibrant arts district including several museums and galleries, a working waterfront, and a generous offering of nationally honored restaurants. A stay in Portland is memorable with a walk through history on cobblestone streets, time in a quiet corner bookstore, or a ferry ride to the islands of Casco Bay. Local coffee, lobster rolls, ocean views— there’s nothing quite like a visit to Maine’s biggest little city.
