When you stay in Diamond Cove, you already have access to a wide range of activities. However, you’re not far from plenty of things to do and see in and around Portland, Maine’s largest city.
In addition to the trails we have on Great Diamond Island, the Eastern Promenade on the mainland offers great views of Casco Bay and a pleasant place to walk or relax. The Back Cove Trail is an easy, 3.5-mile walk and is a great vantage point for admiring the Portland skyline. The Fore River Sanctuary includes trails and Portland’s only natural waterfall, Jewell Falls. A complete list of trails can be found at Portland Trails.
If you’re into history and museums, you may want to visit the Portland Museum of Art, the Maine Historical Society, the Victorian Mansion or the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. There also are some specialized museums that you might not expect to find in Portland – the Museum of African Culture and the Maine Jewish Museum.
