The perfect blend of bustle and beauty

A wonderful place for a leisurely day of exploration, the whimsical woven streets of Portland’s West End offer Victorian architecture, historic charm, sweeping views, and spectacular sunsets from the nearby Western Promenade.

The Longfellow’s neighborhood is full of things to see and do at every turn: You’ll find elegantly restored 19th century brick homes with lush private gardens, incredible independent coffee shops, James Beard–nominated restaurants, fun little boutiques, and more. It’s one of the best-preserved Victorian neighborhoods in the country, and it’s easy to explore—either on one of our complimentary bikes or by foot.

Venture a minute or two further and you’ll find yourself in the Arts District, home to the renowned Portland Museum of Art, galleries, and a wide range of live music venues. Just a few more steps and you’ll be in the Old Port, nestled alongside the working waterfront and packed with more restaurants, bars, and boutiques to explore.

Whether you’re seeking parks or pints, art or adventure, Portland is a place of limitless possibility—and our team is eager to help you craft excursions that include hidden gems, well-known hotspots, and everything in between.
