Combine two fun and fit activities and what do you get? Yoga at Fort Gorges!

The yoga class is suitable for all ages and abilities and the kayaking portion is great for all skill levels, even first-time kayakers!

Whether you’re visiting on vacation or you’ve lived here for years, it’s always good to know the history around you! Join the Maine Historical Society for a 75 minute guided tour through our city’s waterfront, highlighting Portland’s history, maritime heritage, and authentic character.

Wrap up your weekend with a good meal on Portland’s largest waterfront deck as Hello Newman performs, the sun shines, and the Sunday scaries seem so far away.
