  • Looking for a ferry boat ride to a local island?  Maybe this had not crossed you mind, but check!  The ferry to Peak’s Island is only a twenty minute ride, leaving Portland.  Enjoy the views and then prepare to walk Peak’s Island, check out the local history (they were involved in WWII), and catch the amazing views Cliffside, straight out to the ocean.  One of my favorite views anywhere!
  • Botanical Gardens?  Check.  Rated #2 in the country the Botanical Gardens are located 45 minutes from Freeport and offer fun for the entire family.  The Children’s Garden is for everyone.
  • Museums?  Check.  The Maine Maritime Museum and the Portland Museum of Art are both worth a visit.
  • Looking to do nothing at all?  Check.  The hammock in the yard of the inn has hosted many a guest to a good nap.

You get the idea here.  Make Maine your vacation destination and start at James Place Inn in Freeport.  We will gladly help you plan your days, make suggestions, and make reservations for you, if you like.  Now all you have to do is back your bags.
