Planes, Trains, Boats, Automobiles

Enjoy the history, mechanics, and real-life experiences of travel

Kids and kids-at-heart who enjoy the history, mechanics, and real-life experiences of travel will be thrilled with the opportunities in Greater Portland. When forward motion is the objective, head out to view a collection of streetcars and planes, ride a trolley along the coast, and take to the water for a family trip where seals, whales, and puffins put on a show.

The street cars, trolleys and trolley rides at area museums may serve only to pique the interest of transportation lovers. Fortunately they’ll also find kid-friendly Model T rides, coastal biplane rides, a unique railway village and a chance to ride the rails behind an authentic locomotive.

A visit to Portland’s Fire Museum will provide a further look at fire trucks, fire history and related artifacts. At a trip to an area railroad company, families can enjoy a scenic waterfront train ride along beautiful Casco Bay. For those who want to mix water travel into their trip,Casco Bay Lines offers a choice of family cruises where kids can explore tidal pools or wade at one of the small beach areas.Grown-ups and kids alike can also explore area cruises and tours designed to catch a glimpse of Maine’s plentiful wildlife in the sea and sky while cruising along the beautiful coastline.
