Getting There

There are direct flights to Portland International Jetport via Southwest Airlines and other carriers, however, we've found that the more economical option is to fly to Boston (Boston Logan International Airport.) 

To avoid renting a car, there is the option to ride Concord Coach Lines directly from the airport terminal to Portland. Round-trip bus tickets are $50/person. We always ride the bus and it usually takes just under two hours. The bus system in New England is nothing like what you're used to - it's clean, they show movies, have WiFi, restrooms, etc. Once you arrive to Portland, Uber/Lyft is readily available. The wedding venue is approximately 13 minutes from downtown Portland.

July is peak season and vacation rentals/hotels are reaching capacity quickly. Our best suggestion for the most cost-effective accommodations is to consider AirBnB or VRBO, both linked below.

AirBnB

AirBnB is a wonderful way to experience Portland as a local and there are a variety of apartments, studios, houses and more in town that are within walking distance to the best restaurants the city has to offer. If you're traveling with a group, one idea to consider would be to rent one house together to share cost.

Note: AirBnB is not permitted in South Portland unless the owner of the property lives on site. Please ensure if you're booking in South Portland that you directly connect with the property owner.

VRBO

VRBO is another way to experience Maine as a local. There are several larger homes available on VRBO. We recommend Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Willard Beach or Higgins Beach. By staying in Portland, you may be able to avoid renting a car, as everything in the Old Port is within walking distance.
