ShoreTrips says...

Portland was first settled in 1632. Captain Henry Mowatt, British Navy, destroyed the city in 1775, launching the American Revolution. The city was devastated again on July 4, 1866, due to a fireworks celebration. These catastrophic events have caused the city to rise out of the ashes-- like a phoenix--into a grand, Victorian-style masterpiece. Portland's a pretty special place.

We'll start out this day with a lovely drive through Portland's city center. Your guide will point out all the important landmarks and tell you about Portland's history.

Next, we're off to nearby lighthouses with incredible views. We'll visit Maine's oldest lighthouse, “Portland Head,” commissioned by George Washington and first lit in 1791, as well as other local lighthouses.

We'll also pass the Portland Observatory, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow home, and Victoria Mansion.

This is a private tour, so if there's something you would like to incorporate, just let us know. We're happy to take note of your requests and modify the itinerary according to your interests.
