City Views: ‘Portland – Maine’ (4K Video)

Portland is a city in the U.S. state of Maine, set on a peninsula extending into Casco Bay. The Old Port waterfront features working fishing wharves and converted warehouses with restaurants and shops. Nearby, the Western Promenade is a public park atop a bluff, offering river and mountain views. Its surrounding district, the West End, is full of Victorian-era homes, including the Victoria Mansion museum. 

Homes With Views: ‘A Cabin In Northern Maine’ (Video)

The northern Maine hideaway rests on piers above the forest floor and employs broad windows to frame the homeowner’s most prized views of the site.

Stephen Peck and his husband, John Messer, walked their remote, ten-acre plot in Maine for nearly a decade before building their dream home. Yet it was all those walks—paths through the property’s dense forest and around massive boulders to the pond’s edge—that ultimately inspired the structure’s placement deep into the forest, where the site best captures their favorite perspectives of the place.

New Travel Videos: ‘A Night In Maine’ (2020)

Director: Jamie Walter

Pamola Creative worked extensively during the summer of 2019 to create a film, capture timelapses, and produce still images that did justice to the vast amount of night sky viewing opportunities that the state of Maine has to offer. Visit Maine incorporated this project into their major 2020 Bicentennial Campaign.

Destinations: ‘Maine – The Perfect Roadtrip For Fall’

By Dyan Machan, September 30, 2020

Lobsters, treasure hunts and really low Covid-19 numbers. This 3-day getaway up the coast of southern Maine is the ideal antidote to cabin fever.

DAY 1

Wells/Kennebunkport

From wherever you start, plan to arrive in the beach town of Wells by lunchtime. Billowy fried clams and luscious lobster rolls await at Fisherman’s Catch, via exit 19. You’ll also be greeted by wooden smiling lobsters suspended from the ceiling with rolls of paper towels dangling beneath (134 Harbor Road, fishermanscatchwells.com).

DAY 2

Kennebunkport/Wells to Camden, 108 miles

Check out of your hotel and backtrack slightly on Route 1 to Wells. Among its crucial charms is Congdon’s Doughnuts, which opens at 6 a.m. Even if you’re not the type to devour doughnuts at sunrise, you’ll want to be there early or risk missing out on the fiendishly popular maple bacon fritters (1090 Post Rd., Wells, congdons.com).

DAY 3

Camden to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, 77 Miles

Rent mountain bikes from Maine Sport Outfitters (mainesport.com) and drive 3.6 miles to the Camden Snow Bowl Trail head at 20 Barnestown Road for easy-to-challenging trails. During October Sundays and some Saturdays, the ski lift operates 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for prime autumn leaf-viewing.
