Overview Of The Port Of Portland

About Portland
Portland is the largest city in Maine, in the United States of America.

Portland's Old Port District has cobbled streets and beautiful Victorian brick buildings with restaurants, art galleries and speciality shops.

The Portland Museum of Art, houses a permanent collection of paintings by Winslow Homer, Renoir, Monet and Picasso, amongst others.

Nearby is the Children's Museum of Maine, The State Theatre, The Merrill Auditorium and the Portland Performing Arts Centre.

Ride the Maine Narrow Gauge steam train for views of Casco Bay whilst riding along the waterfront.

Maine's oldest lighthouse is located on the shores of Cape Elizabeth. Originally lit with 16 whale-oil lamps, today there are displays at the onsite museum.

Enjoy views of Portland and Casco Bay by climbing up the 100+ steps to the top of the Portland Observatory, built in 1807. The tower is the only remaining wooden maritime signal station in America.

Victoria Mansion, built in 1858, is an Italian villa-style mansion with verandas, a four story tower and a lavish interior. The house was named after Queen Victoria when it was turned into a museum in 1941.

The boyhood home of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Wadsworth-Longfellow House was built in 1785. It now has a collection of Maine's historical artefacts.

Next door is Maine Historical Society Museum which brings Maine history to life.

Take the 15 minute ferry ride from Maine State Pier to Peaks Island, where you can rent a bike or take a guided kayak trip.

Freeport is a well known outlet shopping destination open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Explore the small district of art galleries, seafood restaurants and souvenir shops at Kennebunkport, around 45 minutes south of Portland. This coastal town is regarded as one of the most expensive holiday areas in the northeast.

Seafood is a staple on menus, especially lobster roll, whole lobster and shrimps.
