A historic town sitting on the shore of beautiful Casco Bay, Portland is known as a relaxed seacoast area with tons of art, culture history and excitement. There is plenty to see and things to do in Portland Maine. Dining is a true adventure here, with everything ranging from lobsters and clambakes to unique ethnic foods. The city has a population of 66,000 residents, and is comprised of a large peninsula broken up into different neighborhoods. An exciting vacation spot with always something to do, Portland is a premier, four season destination. We are truly lucky to be one of the Portland hotels so close to this beautiful destination.
