Long-Island is one of the best known islands of Casco Bay, located just five miles off the coast of Portland, and blessed with spectacular white sand beaches set against granite cliffs. Long Island is also the name of the small village that includes Vaill Island and several other smaller islands. Part of Cumberland County, the town of Long Island was incorporated in 1992 and was once a part of the city of Portland. It has since become a popular resort island with tourists, known for its' excellent fishing. Long Island is also a year round fishing and farming community that offers quaint county fairs, sailing races, hiking trails, a large spruce and fir forest and one of the largest meadow ecosystems on any Maine island. It is easily accessibly by ferry from the mainland and makes a peaceful, relaxing base for a vacation. Other nearby attractions include the Old Port Exchange along the waterfront in Portland, outlet stores shopping, the Portland Art Museum and Wyeth Collection, the Children's Museum of Maine, various fishing charters, historic lighthouses, amusement parks and waterparks.
