Hi, I'm Tim!
I travel a lot internationally for business and pleasure. I love to travel and I rent out people's homes, condos or apartments several times a year.
Portland is a great city. It has everything you could want in a location. You can go to one of the 20 beaches within 30 minutes of the city, or visit Sebago lake. Their is beautiful rocky coast and lighthouses, art galleries, a great art museum, good theatre and some very, very good restaurants. I think there are two James Beard Award winning chefs in Portland and 10-12 other establishments of similar quality. The shopping of Freeport and downtown Portland is at your doorstep so the mandatory visit it LL Bean and all of the outlets allows a day or two of activities for those who love to shop. One of my favorite things to do is to take the ferry ride out around the islands that are part of the City of Portland. A great, inexpensive way to see the beautiful coast and get a better feel for the city and its inhabitants. Take some bikes and ride around the islands and have a picnic. If you are brave, jump off the docks into the cool water. Some are almost 40 ft high.
