Finding Peace, Beauty, and History in the Nation's Original 'New York'
There’s so much more than just the peninsula! The Old Port and Congress Street most certainly have their appeal, and we will surely explore the storied history around every brick and corner in center of town. In many ways, the history becomes even richer (and the views more spectacular!) when we venture out to the Western and Eastern Promenades. These areas show the true charms of residential Portland.
But, the ease of riding a bike also gives us access to the fascinating neighborhoods further out around beautiful Back Cove. And, don’t forget, a separate municipality in its own right, the up-and-coming South Portland. Crossing the breathtaking Casco Bay Bridge is must when riding in the Portland area, and the neighborhoods, lighthouses, beaches, and views back at Portland and the Calendar Islands make SoPo irresistible for anyone exploring the area.
