Whether you’re heading home from a long day at the beach or walking around Portland’s Old Port, you’ll have plenty of occasion to enjoy a sweet treat while visiting Greater Portland.
It’s hard not to love the holiday season, but there’s some extra magic when you get to spend it in Maine. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that when it snows, you’ll feel like you’re living in a postcard.
Maine is home to over 6,000 lakes and ponds, meaning fishing is merely a matter of choosing a clear and vibrant body of water and the right tackle.
Portland’s reputation as a culinary destination doesn’t overshadow the options visitors will find for kids and families.
Skiing on a blanket of fresh snow is any Mainer’s idea of a perfect day. State parks and resorts welcome skiers, sledders, and snowboarders.
Maine’s reputation as a surfing destination has stuck, with miles of beaches and waves. Surfers seek out ways to explore a local river or lake.
Take a breath of the Maine outdoors! Campers in Maine always feel they are a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, even if they aren’t that far.
Kids and adults alike will find activities ideal for thrill seekers from paddle boarding to fly fishing to zip lining and everything in between.
Across Greater Portland we are bringing the fun with annual fairs, festivals, and exciting events all year long and for all ages.
Concerts, parades, craft sales, visits from Santa, and a real Talking Christmas Tree – it’s part of a tradition that families love to visit every year.
This historic event started in the 1800s and today it has everything you would expect from a local fair: carnival rides, a petting zoo, and lots of fair food.
This festival, a Maine summertime tradition since 1965, is a celebration of the local community with carnival rides, fair foods, clam shucking, and much more.
