Portland offers an astonishing variety of things to do, see, listen to, buy, eat, and experience. Sophisticated or fun, business or not, a stay at The Danforth can be calm and restorative or fast-paced and exciting, but it will never be dull. The Danforth is a short walk to the Midtown Arts District, with myriad small galleries, as well as the Portland Museum of Art and the Children's Museum of Maine. A short distance farther is the Old Port Exchange, where great restaurants, galleries, and shops abound, and the waterfront provides an ever-changing backdrop. Seasonally, there is ice skating, open markets, street theatre, beach basking and snowshoeing. Music, theatre, spas, museums, galleries, historic homes, parades, cruises, sightseeing?

We are at your service to provide whatever you need: Maps, directions, restaurant information, current exhibits, theater, what not to miss, and the best time to go.
