Welcome to Portland

A historic seacoast town with a vibrant working waterfront, Portland is a destination for “foodies” and art lovers.


Portland is Maine’s largest urban area and the “Old Port” is its epicenter with cobblestone streets, working wharves, art galleries, specialty shops, and award-winning restaurants. The Portland art scene rivals that of larger cities and features the world-renowned Portland Museum of Art, a resident symphony orchestra, numerous art galleries, and professional theatre. With its nationally acclaimed restaurants, local hidden gems, pubs tucked away in restored historic buildings, street food, and lobster shacks, Portland lives up to its “Foodiest Small Town” name.  Perched on Casco Bay, it’s home to many island and coastal communities accessible by the Casco Bay ferry.
