Portland is the biggest city in the state of Maine and home to around 40 percent of the state’s residents. It is loved by tourists for the natural appeal and occasionally chilly but generally invigorating coastal living. The state attracts boaters, sailors and foodies all looking to enjoy all that Portland has to offer. If myth and legend is your thing, Portland Maine is home to the International Cryptozoology Museum that displays artifacts from supposed cryptozoological creatures including Bigfoot. Famous for its seafood, Portland is the 20th largest port in America and the closest one to Europe. Maine is well known for fresh seafood and many restaurants offer the state’s specialties of lobster, clams and crab prepared in various exciting ways. We recommend the lobster roll from the Portland Lobster Company on Commercial Street, which you can find in Portland’s Old Port.
