South-Portland is part of the Portland metro area and is the fourth largest city in the state of Maine. Located in the southern mid-coast region, South Portland has culture, urban life, history and architecture and a beautiful coastline. You can explore the islands of Casco Bay, or one of the five historic lighthouses located within a ten-mile radius of South Portland. Swimming, boating, sailing, fishing, sea kayaking, beachcombing, and other beach activities are all possible in and around the city. And, the lovely, tree-lined Greenbelt Parkway in South Portland has miles of beautifully maintained trails for hiking and biking. Visit nearby Scarborough, one of the oldest settlements in Maine, and Cape Elizabeth, home of the Two Lights lighthouse. The city of Portland is just five minutes away with its museums and fine restaurants, and Old Port area full of unique shops, boutiques and art galleries. South Portland is home to the annual "Art Show in the Park," which usually takes place in August in Mill Creek Park, and features original art and photography from up to 175 artists. This fun family event also has lots of food, face painting for children, music performed in the park gazebo, and a special "Kids in the Park" area where children can make their own artistic creations.
