5 BEST Things To Do In Portland Maine

Boat Tours of the Casco Bay

Tour boats leave from Old Port on the south edge of Portland Maine, and you can get as budget-friendly or luxurious as you choose. Casco Bay Lines is the most dominant ferry service, with options for standard tours, charter trips, lobster bakes, and special events. 

Fort Gorge

One of the best “hiding in plain sight” Portland Maine adventures is at Fort Gorges in the bay between the Eastern Promenade and Little Diamond Island. 

Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine

The interactive Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine museum is designed for children and families with hands-on exhibits that encourage creativity, exploration, and learning. Don’t let the name fool you, though, because there are After Dark events just for adults throughout the year. 

Tate House Museum

The Tate House Museum is the epitome of an affluent 18th-century home in Portland Maine. It was owned by a noble shipping Englishman named Captain George Tate. 

Sebago Lake State Park

When someone says, “Let’s go to The Lake in Southern Maine,” they’re likely talking about Sebago Lake less than an hour from Portland. You can be landlocked or take the ferry to Frye Island. This is an especially great day trip when coastal winds are kicking up some wicked waves.
