This summer my best friend and I took a road trip to Portland, Maine and we quickly fell in love with this quaint, New England town.
Portland is an incredibly charming town located on the Casco Bay. I visited in July so the weather was perfect for all the outdoor activities this town has to offer. Not only is Portland beautiful, bike-able and a foodie's dream, but the townies are so warm and welcoming! Cannot wait to share my trip with you all and am hoping this helps you when you plan your next visit to Portland. (P.S. I'm working on my New England road trip guide so stay posted on that!)
Where To Stay
Press Hotel: If you are visiting Portland, Maine this is the only place to stay. Okay not literally, but in my opinion, Press Hotel is the only place you should stay. This hotel used to be part of the old Portland Press Herald newspaper HQ, hence the name. The newspaper theme resonates throughout the hotel; with quotes written in hidden nooks in the rooms, and even a vintage typewriter where you can type out and mail a letter from the hotel!
From the moment you arrive, the Press staff treats you with warmth that will instantly make you feel at home. The staff gives excellent recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area. The rooms are insanely comfortable (with beautiful, white marble bathrooms) and somehow smell more and more amazing every time you step foot back into them. And the best part- Press has free bikes! Biking is really the best way to get around the town, so having this available with your stay is really worth it.
