When in Portland, spend the day cruising around Casco Bay via ferry, and spend an afternoon on Peaks Island. Rent bikes, sight see, and grab lunch at a favorite locals’ haunt, The Cockeyed Gull. You can also rent kayaks, hunt for shells along the beach, and no island visit is complete without an ice cream from Down Front.
If you didn’t already know, Portland is a premier destination for craft beer lovers. Home to 14 breweries (and counting!) resident of Portland have their pick of tasty local beers year-round. Our favorite is Allagash, where you can sample a revolving flight of four different beers for free, or consider taking a brew bus tour.
