Peninsular hub, Portland, easily bridges the gap between historic port and modern city, home to a range of cultural sight, bordered by sandy beaches and within easy reach of a variety of water-based activities.
Maine's Native American Heritage, specifically that of the Wabanaki, is the focus for the Abbe Museum's exhibits of art and artifacts. Having grown from its early days as a trailside museum in Acadia National Park, the museum now includes both a larger downtown site and the original location, both geared to encourage understanding of the Wabanaki people and history through visually stimulating exhibits. See an authentic birchbark canoe, take in hand-crafted baskets and centuries-old tools and textiles as you explore this pleasant cultural facility.
