Portland

4.3

The Forest City

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. Historic red-brick buildings and cobblestone streets make up much of its bustling Old Port area, where seafood restaurants sit just a stone's throw away from the working wharves. Downtown boasts a wide array of stores, bars, world-class museums, and art galleries. Trendy locals tend to congregate in the Munjoy Hill neighborhood, home to some of the city's hippest cafes and bars. When the sun is shining, locals and visitors enjoy relaxing in the city's ample green spaces. Portland is in Maine. Our United States tour itinerary planner allows you to schedule your trip to Portland, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Portland
