Westbrook

Conveniently located approximately six miles outside the city of Portland and just three miles northwest of the Portland Airport, Westbrook combines business, culture, and outdoor fun in a very special community for its residents, its business people, and its visitors.

The revitalization of Westbrook’s downtown in recent years has given rise to a new and upcoming creative community with art and cultural opportunities, including a beautiful performing arts center and a thriving Main Street, which houses a variety of shops, offices and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy a top shelf selection of pubs, specialty shops, and international cuisine. They can also take in summer music concerts and family-centered winter festivals that bring local participants and those from neighboring regions looking to get in on the fun.


Treasures of a Maine River

Westbrook’s history as a leader in the paper industry dates from the mid-1800s. Built upon the success of Westbrook's mills, the town boasts a thriving industrial park and is headquarters for leaders in the areas of construction, insurance, and biotechnology. The town is home to a multinational corporation in addition to the small businesses within its emergent downtown district. The Presumpscot River flows through the town, and while it made Westbrook a prime location for early industry, it nourishes the town’s role as a destination for outdoor enthusiasts today. Those seeking to enjoy a beautiful stretch of the Presumpscot River between Saccarappa Falls and the historic Elms can do so on their own or by guided tour. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards can be rented, and easy-access docks are located along the river for visitors putting in on their own.


Local Buzz

Westbrook has in recent years been host to the Tough Mudder, an obstacle course challenge that is the ultimate test of strength, grit, stamina, and teamwork that has brought more than 13,000 participants to the town. The 10-mile course includes such extreme obstacles as the Dead Ringer incline, the Cry Baby tunnel, and a slicked quarter-pipe known as Everest.
