One of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. You will enjoy your time here. The park is wonderful to spend an afternoon, get a bite or see Casco Bay sites.

Enjoy a ferry ride into the Casco Bay. I love to visit the beach on Peaks Island or have lunch out on Great Diamond.

Portlands east end has a beach, boat ramp, views of the Casco Bay, and big old Victorian mansions. There are many cool places to stop and get a bite on the Eastern Prom. People fly kites and watch the 4th of July fireworks.

Food scene
If you want to try one of the best donuts in the country you will enjoy having a Maine made potato donut. On the weekends the lines can be rather long.

Reasonably priced Breakfast offerings are unique like a lobster omelet. Local fishermen eat an early breakfast here. Seafood is all good and servings are large. A local hangout

Traveler advice

What to pack

Layer clothing the weather changes frequently

I always let guest know the weather in Maine changes frequently. Layering example is a tank top, tee shirt, fleece, jacket to rain gear. You may find this helpful especially if taking a ferry trip to one of the Casco Bay Islands
Getting around

Bus, Uber, Walk, flight, train

Portland International is easy to fly into. We are an $8.00-$10.00 Uber into Portland There is a bus two blocks from the house to all surrounding areas. There is a Greenbelt walkway one block from the house into Portland a leisurely 20 walk across the Casco Bay Bridge. Take a bus to Boston from Portland
Customs & culture

Portland is a Multi Cultural, Foodie arts city

Portland has a vast Multi cultural climate. You can enjoy everything from fine arts, antiquities, and retro shopping. The city is know for micro brews, and being one of the best foodie cities in the country. Enjoy taking a ferry out into the Casco Bay or taking a boat out to enjoy the sites. There are several lighthouses in the Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth area.
