Culture and Family Activities Near Portland

Inn by the Sea and the surrounding area is rich in scenic and recreational opportunity. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy our close proximity to fishing, boating, nature walks and sports of many kinds. Culture vultures will find music, theater, and museums just minutes away in downtown Portland. And for those whose vacations are not complete without some power shopping, Portland abounds with owner-operated shops, galleries, and boutiques filled with fashion, supplies, and objects d’art you simply won’t find elsewhere.

There is so much here you may run out of time before you run out of things to do. But make sure you save time for plenty of serene relaxation right here on Crescent Beach.
