Visitor's Guide 2015

AUTHENT IC ALLURE It’s all right here: great dining and shopping,

have long been the mainstay of the region’s appeal. Bon Appétit magazine once dubbed Portland “America’s Foodiest Small Town” in recognition of the excellence achieved by our chefs, restaurants, and food purveyors. We’re so proud of our food scene that we’ve created an event to celebrate and share it. Harvest on the Harbor, a multi-day culinary festival held each fall on Portland’s waterfront, draws foodies from near and far. FAMI LY FUN Greater Portland is fun for the whole family, so don’t leave the kids at home. They’ll love the hands-on exhibits at the Children’s Museum and a ride on an historic streetcar, steam train, or Model-T at one of the region’s transportation museums. Baseball, hockey, and basketball fans will find big-league entertainment at minor-league prices at one of Portland’s home-team games. From amusement parks to wildlife parks, agricultural fairs to folk-life festivals, there are so many things to entertain active kids of all ages.

hopping nightlife, outdoor recreation, historical and cultural attractions, and stunning natural beauty. Its small scale, accessible waterfront, Old World ambience, and youthful vibe have propelled Portland to the top of many national lists of best places to vacation. But you won’t have to give up the quintessential Maine coast to enjoy all that Greater Portland has to offer — islands, lighthouses, beaches, and surf crashing on the rocky shore are all in proximity of Portland’s vibrant, historic downtown. Portland, Maine Authentic – By Nature.
