Trip Ideas: Farms & Fiberarts
Located on Casco Bay, Portland is the gateway to the region’s many islands and surrounding coastal communities. Portland is Maine’s largest city and is known for the Old Port’s lively shopping district, the diverse arts & entertainment options and its award winning cuisine. The surrounding farmland provides many local restaurants with fresh produce, cheese and meat.
