Scenic Drives & Coastal Tours
Nestled between Maine's forest-covered mountains and spectacular rugged coast, Portland is a rough-hewn gem of New England. The state's classic coastal lighthouses and crashing waves are the perfect backdrop for a sightseeing junket along the coast in any season of the year. While summer drives folks yearning for fresh sea air to the beaches, autumn brings vibrant colors and turns Maine into New England's favorite leaf-peeping destination, where fall foliage is unrivaled along rural back roads and provides a colorful canopy to seaside villages.
