Bonnie’s Buzzing About Portland, Maine

I love this gorgeous East Coast city on the water, and I’m here to tell you why Portland, Maine is the main event!

The first thing you’ll want to do is explore Portland’s Historic District. Nicknamed “Old Port,” you’ll witness historic building facades, fishermen displaying their daily catches, and an abundance of shops and restaurants. There will be many opportunities for cruises and boat rides, too. If you’re feeling adventurous, visit the Casco Bay Islands off the coast, which are accessible by ferry year round, offering visitors beaches and island activities.

If you really want to treat yourself, you can book a Private Lighthouse Sightseeing Charter on a Vintage Lobster Boat. Pass by four different lighthouses while your Captain tells you all about Maine’s history. After your day in the sun, catch an orchestral show at the Merrill Auditorium. There’s so many fabulous cultural activities to do in Portland.
