Tons of local craft beer joints. Great restaurants and quaint waterfront shops in the Old Port section of the city. Commercial Street is on the water & can take Casco Bay ferry to Islands in the Bay. Bike rentals and city guides are also available. Portland Museum of Art is fantastic and there are other historic homes and forts to explore. Lots to do. Plan for a day or maybe even two.

Great beach for surfing and families. At the end of strip is lovely new playground for children that over looks the beach. It's called Mothers Beach for obvious reasons. Kids and parents just love it !! Middle Beach & Gooches beach are also along the strip and those are where the teenagers and adults tend to be. It's the closest beach to town and you can easily walk or ride a bike. Beach passes required to park a car.
