Portland Travel Guide

Why? Situated on a peninsula, ringed by islets, and filled with charming Victorian buildings, shops and restaurants, Portland, Maine is an ideal holiday destination, which is probably why its population significantly increases in summertime as thousands flock to holiday in Portland. The city is packed with things to see and do, from lingering at the cafes of the Old Port to taking a lobster boat cruise.

When? While summer is definitely the season to make the most of a holiday in Portland, many choose to travel to Portland during the autumn, a pretty season when the russet foliage sets the city alight. Winters are very chilly with temperatures often dipping below freezing.

Who for? Anyone looking for a relaxing summer seaside break will enjoy a holiday in Portland, where there is plenty of good seafood to eat, interesting diversions and attractions, and plenty of unique boutiques and stores to browse through.
