Greater Portland Visitor's Guide

DAY THREE 8 BRUNCH IT UP Rising early or sleeping in, continue the culinary exploration with farm-fresh food to start your day—and if it includes lobster, all the better! Pair award-winning coffee, spicy Bloody Marys, or craft brews with innovative, locally-sourced cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere (and maybe even an ocean view). [p. 31-39] 9 SOCIAL DISTANCE IN STYLE Choose a path, and make sure its less traveled! Island-hop to one of Casco Bay’s harbor islands to bike, hike, swim, or discover hidden coves and forgotten forts. Meander along 70+ miles of Portland Trails, through leafy woods, historic cemeteries, rocky shores, peaceful salt marshes, and quiet city streets. Secret beaches and tiny islands can be reached by kayak or private boat. Sometimes the least expected things to do are the most rewarding, such as tapping into a creative interest at cool art galleries on a hot summer day, snow shoeing on golf courses in the winter, tubing down a lazy river, climbing a mountain when everyone else is swimming at the shore, or hiking to a waterfall in the center of Maine’s largest city. FORGET ‘ME’ NOTS A keepsake from a treasured trip evokes smiles long into the future! Sometimes it’s a practical bag made from authentic sails; perhaps a unique craft beer; a funny tee shirt; a favorite team’s cap; or even local designer jewelry, food, or works of art. We hope a trip to Greater Portland is able to brighten your 2020, and fond memories will bring you back to Maine soon. [p. 42-46].
