Portland’s North Atlantic allure

Maine’s Portland has gained a ton of buzz over recent years for good reason: it’s a lobster lover’s paradise with plenty of tourist attractions and historic sights for U.S. history buffs and casual visitors alike.

The seaswept cobbled streets of downtown Portland hide nooks and crannies stuffed with charming shops, art museums, and delicious seafood — the classic New England experience.

Portland favorites

Sumptuous seafood, relaxing beaches, untamed wilderness — whatever your travel requirements, the Portland area’s got something for you.

Old Port

The heart of town is Old Port, the historic cobblestone-paved city center along the Portland Harbor waterfront. Make a reservation and grab some chowder at the restaurants on Commercial Street or Congress Street, and hit the boutique shops during downtime.

Portland Museum of Art

Across from Congress Square Park, PMOA houses a huge collection of American, European, and local contemporary works, including impressive artists like Andy Warhol and Claude Monet. You can find public parking lots closeby.

Brewery tours

Portland is home to a ton of breweries. Some favorites to hit are the well-known Allagash Brewery, Sebago, Shipyard, and Rising Tide Brewing Company. Hop on a Bike and Brews tour and leave the car behind.

Hit the road

While there’s plenty to see and eat in the center of town, there’s more popular attractions a quick drive away that make for perfect East Coast road trips. Hit one of the go-to day trip destinations around Portland, then fill up the tank and head off to some of the nearby towns along the coast for a New England-style relaxing family vacation in an unforgettable location.

Casco Bay Islands

This archipelago off the coast of Portland is accessible by ferry year-round. Take a Casco Bay Lines ferry around or to any of the islands — Peaks Island and Great Diamond Island are popular — and soak in an abundance of American history, coastlines, shops, and museums.

Cape Elizabeth

Cape Elizabeth is an excellent day trip option about 9 miles south of Portland. It’s known for rolling hills, Crescent Beach State Park, and historic lighthouses like Two Lights Lighthouse and Portland Head Light at Fort Williams Park, which was commissioned by George Washington back in the 1700s.

Bar Harbor

A quaint fishing village turned trendy up-and-comer, Bar Harbor is about a three-hour drive up US Route 1 on the Maine coast. Travel to wild Acadia National Park’s soaring granite cliffs and lush coastlines, and you’ll find all the seafood you expect from a north Atlantic town.

Best Portland driving roads

Purple squiggle

Million Dollar View Scenic Byway

This is just one of the many stretches of Route 1 that’ll have your eyes glued to the window. Though it’s over three hours north from Portland along the Canadian border, it sweeps past the Chiputneticook chain of lakes, with scenic views of Mount Katahdin and Peekaboo Mountain.

Route 113

The 50 miles from Portland to Fryeburg includes Pequawket Trail Maine Scenic Byway, which follows the Saco River and Mountain Division Rail past working farms, swimming holes, and the Hemlock Covered Bridge in Fryeburg, and it’s the perfect New England leaf-peeping route in the fall.

Katahdin Woods & Waters Scenic Byway

The northern part of Maine is sparsely populated, people know Baxter State Park as a worthy location to spend some time. With excellent options for camping, hiking, and rafting, the drive also offers sweeping views of Mount Katahdin — then drivers can head further into the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.
