The Outdoor Adventures
8 US cities where you’ll find culture and outdoor adventures
“Maine’s largest city, Portland has Casco Bay at the front door and Maine’s 3000-plus lakes at the back, so outdoorsy Portlanders spend a lot of time on, in or around water. An old rumor that Casco Bay holds 365 islands led some to call them the Calendar Islands: one for each day of the year.”
-Andy Murdock, Lonely Planet
The Food + Drink
Portland, Maine: Lobstering, Rare Beer, and Sunset Surf
“The original Portland (founded in 1786) is cozy at about a tenth the size of its West Coast counterpart, with more fresh lobster and restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in the country. With a working downtown port, access to Atlantic, rivers, lakes, mountains, and trails, and the home of fleece-monger L.L.Bean, Portland’s the place to be.” -Ari Bendersky, Men’s Journal
The best spots in the USA for a cinematic proposal
“In the USA’s northeastern corner is the state of Maine, where striped lighthouses are perched along the rocky coastline in-between sandy coves, and sailboats chase the breeze across the green-blue Atlantic, creating a soothing and naturally stunning setting for a proposal.” –Booking.com
6 Romantic Winter Getaways in Northern New England
“In Portland’s Old Port area, narrow, gas-lit streets—perfect for walking hand-in-hand in the snow—lead to delightful shops, galleries, and a multitude of acclaimed restaurants.” -Mimi Bigelow Steadman, AAA
