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.
Whether you're looking for a way to fill chilly winter afternoons or keep young ones occupied on long summer days, the Children's Museum of Maine in downtown Portland should fit the bill nicely. Packed with hands-on exhibits like the "Lobster Boat", "Vet Clinic" and "Oakie Acres" (where kids can play at farm life), this museum facility is designed to educate as it entertains. Be sure to take in the views of the city from the museum's Camera Obscura and consider signing your offspring up for one of the camp sessions offered during summer months.
