Portland, ME, Guide and Information


Portland, ME Guide

About Portland

Portland sure has stories to tell. Our waterfront still reflects its long maritime history with a delightful historic walking district, stately and historic buildings, a vibrant waterfront sprinkled with shops, restaurants and galleries. The restaurants in particular offer everything for the adventurous palate - from exquisite Thai to traditional New England chowder, lobster and clams. Nearby downtown Portland one can climb the craggy rock coast, explore lighthouses, hike mountain peaks, bike local trails and hike through peaceful forests.
