Portland, Maine

This hardworking town is a great contrast of a working class community and a wonderful old New England city where you can wander the streets, eat in fine restaurants, and shop for everything from clothes to furniture right across from the docks where fisherman haul in their daily catch.

Nantucket Island

Nantucket is an island 30 miles (48.3 km) south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the United States. Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and the coterminous Nantucket County, which are consolidated. Part of the town is designated the Nantucket CDP, or census designated place. The region of Surfside on Nantucket is the southernmost settlement in Massachusetts.
