Climb 103 Steps To The Top Of The Portland Observatory In Maine And You Can See All The Way To New Hampshire
Though we might be slightly biased, Maine tops the list of most scenic states in the country. With all that forest and the absolutely spectacular coastline, it’s no surprise why our highways are packed when the weather is nice. While there are plenty of hikes and drives that will allow you to take in the surrounding vistas, we love this simple little attraction located in Portland.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The Portland Observatory is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can learn more about its history and how to visit here. Or, check out all the Portland landmarks on Facebook. If you have questions, you can reach them on 207-774-5561. Please note that as of today’s writing, the elevator is not working. Please be sure to check with them before visiting to see if it’s been repaired.
Another great view in Maine is from the world’s tallest bridge observatory in Prospect, Maine! Check it out here.
Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
