With the rugged, unspoiled beauty of land and water just outside of the city, Portland has enjoyed a marked increase in tourist interest in recent years. Numerous magazine and travel articles have described the first class outdoor activities, shopping, and dining in Maine’s capital. But the city was also recently recognized by the Miliken Institute as one of the top 100 Best Performing Cities in the nation. Portland Stage, Portland Symphony Orchestra, Portland Museum of Art and the Choral Art Society are just a few of the excellent institutions which make their home in Portland.
