Easily a favorite among New England's cities is Portland, Maine. While it is Maine's largest city, that is hardly the most interesting fact about Portland. Like many coastal Maine towns and cities, Portland is extremely rich in history, as shown through its architecture, cobblestone streets in Old Port, original lighthouses off its shores, and its many museums. While the 18th century is very much evident in Portland, its population of young students, artists, writers, activists, and professionals bring the city full swing into modern times. Portland is home to the University of Southern Maine, Andover College, SALT Institute for Documentary Studies, University of New England Westbrook Campus, and Maine College of Art.
Portland's Arts District is located on Congress Street near the West End and is rich with galleries, museums, and theatre companies, as well as music shops, cafes and thrift stores. After spending the day exploring the city, Bubba's Sulky Lounge is a local favorite for all ages. Dance on its colorful light-up dancefloor for 80s night, gawk at its ridiculous garage sale-chic decor, and have a total blast! Looking for something more low-key? Choose from dozens of independent cafes and restaurants where your single cup of coffee is brewed just for you, visit the Fort Allen Park for some sunbathing and simply to enjoy the ocean view. Along Congress Street, find Portland Public Library, Lincoln Park, Stage Theatre, Congress Plaza and numerous restaurants serving a diverse array of international and local cuisines.
