Our location in beautiful Portland is also a great reason to join us. Our city has been recognized numerous times as a metropolitan hub that features award-winning gourmet dining, diverse cultural activities and a variety of sporting attractions. The city itself is located on a peninsula in Casco Bay. Here, you will find a wealth of activities, and the mountains of western Maine are just 45 minutes away by car. So whether your preference is hiking or skiing; biking or walking; sunbathing or sailing – or even doing nothing at all – you don’t have far to go to find it in Portland. If you like to explore larger cities, Boston is less than a 2-hour drive away.
