Explore Maine's Waterfront City

Seascapes and cityscapes blend harmoniously in Portland, perched on a peninsula, jutting out into island-studded Casco Bay. The metropolitan hub of Maine’s south coast region, Portland is a lively city that incorporates an historic atmosphere into a modern, urban environment.

Welcome to Maine.

Older architecture blends gracefully with the new as you stroll along the working waterfront or the cobblestone streets of the Old Port section of town. Portland is easy to navigate by foot, taxi or bus. Small parks and squares dot the landscape, offering comfortable respite for urban explorers. Intriguing shops and cozy coffee and teahouses beckon to passersby. Harbor cruises, trolley and architectural walking tours, as well as a wealth of galleries, are within easy reach, nestled along the waterfront.

On a stroll through the Old Port, one of the country’s more successful warehouse revitalization efforts, you’ll hear the squall of gulls and the low moan of bell buoys as you watch fishermen unloading their daily catch. Portland’s waterfront is still very much a working port, an integral and thriving part of the local economy. Underlying the latest tech, fashion, and culinary scene is a natural authenticity and a deep sense of continuity. With sophisticated style and artistic sensibilities, Portland is never-the-less unpretentious and welcoming.

Maine’s largest city has been steadily gaining a national reputation for its innovative restaurants and award-winning chefs. Join us in October for Harvest on the Harbor, celebrating the fantastic food, wine, products, and creative preparation that contribute to the state’s culinary renown. Experience seminars and demonstrations, wine, beer and spirit tastings, and a culinary marketplace, all with a backdrop of ferries, gulls, and salty sea breezes.

Once your delegates get a taste for Portland, they’re sure to want more!
