Maine's biggest and perhaps most vibrant city, Portland was established as a fishing village in 1633 and grew to become New England's largest port.
You've now added Ram Island Ledge Light to your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Casco Bay and Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company and Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Pine Point Beach and Higgins Beach. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Wadsworth-Longfellow House, sample the tasty concoctions at Shipyard Brewing Company, do a tasting at Maine Mead Works, and get some thrills on the water with Ribbit Adventures.
