Scarborough-Cape Elizabeth


Old Orchard Beach l Portland-Casco Bay l Freeport l Bath-Brunswick


Just south east of Portland is Cape Elizabeth, home of Two Lights State Park and the scenic marsh lands of Scarborough. Locals think of Cape Elizabeth as a wealthy bed-base among the Portland community. Near Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach and Scarborough, this is a peaceful seaside region of Victorian-inspired cottages and luxurious, coastal homes. Seaside cottages and oceanfront mansions hug the shoreline looking out toward Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors will find a delightful casual drive alogn the coast, by grand mansions on the way to the Portland Head Light for a day of picnicking and scenic walks in South Portland's Fort Williams Park.


Scarborough is home to several sand beaches like Ferry Beach, well-protected on Prouts Neck. Higgins Beach and Scarborough Beach are more dramatically exposed to the ocean and ideal for a beach day of exploring, swimming or sunning. Search for hotels, inns, or vacation rental homes in Scarborough or Cape E if you're planning on canoeing the Scarborough marshes, exploring Casco Bay lighthouses and nearby Fort Williams, or if you are looking to settle between Portland and Old Orchard Beach. Scarborough also offers plenty of restaurants - seafood to Italian to Greek, shopping, and even movie theaters, horse racing, and bowling alleys for family fun.
