There's a reason Maine is often referred to as "Vacationland." With its serene shorelines, craggy coasts, and vibrant port towns, it's practically as picturesque as a postcard. And although the entire state is sprawling with getaway destinations, if you're looking for the ultimate escape, look no further than Maine's largest city, Portland. While we all know Portland, OR, is home to a good time, this seaside haven on the East Coast is bubbling over with just as much adventure. From its lively waterfront and thriving arts scene to its historic neighborhoods and farm-to-table philosophy, it's no wonder Portland has quickly become one of the hippest small cities in America. It truly has something for everyone. I mean, who doesn't love fresh lobster rolls? And thanks to its convenient location, this corner of New England is the perfect springboard for tons more Maine adventures.
