The Portland & Casco Bay region is something of an oddity for Maine, offering one of the state’s few truly urban centers: Portland! But, it’s a great oddity at that! Admire the galleries of the city’s Arts District, dine on some classic Casco Bay cod at Hugo’s and shop ‘till you drop in Old Port. Don’t worry, though, non-urbanites; the sparkling waters and sites of Casco Bay are nearby! Ride the ferry to Peaks or Eagle Islands, two of over 200 islands in Casco Bay. Or, check out Cape Elizabeth, famous for the Beach to Beacon 10K running race that begins at Crescent Beach State Park and ends at the much photographed Portland Head Lighthouse. There’s something for both city dwellers and nature lovers in the Portland & Casco Bay area!
