“Seascapes and cityscapes blend harmoniously in Portland, perched on a peninsula, jutting out into island-studded Casco Bay. The metropolitan hub of Maine’s south coast region, Portland is a progressive, lively city incorporating the character of yesteryear into a modern urban environment. Historic architecture blends gracefully with the new as you stroll along her working waterfront or the cobblestone streets of the restored Old Port section of the city.” – from the City of Portland website
The City of Portland is a great walkable city and we hope you will enjoy it on Saturday. Just remember to be at the pier to board the boat at 3:30pm.

For wedding guests that will be flying in, the closest airport is Portland International Jetport. It is a small airport, but flights come in from all around the country. There is public transit from the airport to downtown, as well as cab service. Portland is also just 2 hours north of Boston’s Logan Airport.
If you prefer to travel by train you will arrive at the Portland Transportation Center where there are public transportation connections to points throughout downtown. There is also an Amtrak train called the Downeaster which travels to and from Boston 5 times a day.
