Casco Bay is home to several popular islands, including Peaks Island, Little Diamond Island, Great Diamond Island and Long Island. Maine’s largest city, Portland, hugs its shoreline. Portland and its popular Old Port district is rapidly growing in popularity, with tourists traveling from near and far to experience the city’s culture, nationally recognized restaurant scene and booming microbreweries. There are plenty of places for out-of-town guests to stay, from boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts in the city’s historic West End district, to trendy hotels in downtown, to picturesque island cottage rentals and retreats.
“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air”Ralph Waldo Emerson
