Portland International Flights Guide
Not to be confused with the larger Portland in Oregon, Portland Maine is the biggest city of its state at the other, eastern extreme of the country. Native Americans inhabited the land long before the first British settlers established a colony here in 1623. Portland grew, and like many cities in the late 19th century it burned. Today, though, it retains a lovely historical aspect that attracts visitors from the mega cities to the south.
Portland sits on Casco Bay. Visitors take tours on old ferry boats out into the bay to see the Portland Head Lighthouse and view the city form the water. Thereís a museum at the lighthouse, which itself is considered one of the most beautiful in the nation. Also nearby is the Fort Williams WWII rampart. In Portland itself, the Victoria Mansion survived the fire. It is a gorgeous and lavish manor that was constructed in the 18th century before the Civil War. Out on Spring Point are a number of other attractions, including the Portland Harbor Museum. The Old Port should be next, and offers a relaxing journey into the past via its cobbled alleyways and picturesque waterfront. Portlandís aesthetic is surprisingly pleasing.
Portland International Jetport sounds very 1970s, but no one has yet suggested changing the name. It receives flights from the main US carriers, including Delta, US Airways, United, Southwest and JetBlue.
