Housing big names such as Andy Warhol on its walls, the largest and oldest public art institution in Maine, is worth a visit. It features art from local artists, a sculpture garden, feature films, and some of the state's best architecture present in its three buildings. Each building features different types of art, providing something for every art connoisseur.
The New England coast is host to scores of lighthouses, and Maine boasts 65 of them, dotted along its rugged shorelines. When you find yourself in the state’s largest city, make sure you swing by the state’s oldest lighthouse, Portland Head Light at Fort Williams Park, just four miles from downtown Portland. This storied beacon of light was first constructed while George Washington was still president, and the former keeper’s quarters is now a museum. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore Fort Williams Park itself, with its haunting historic ruins.
If you’re longing for fresh-caught Maine lobster, why not cut out the middleman and catch one yourself? No, we’re not pulling your claw. Stop by Portland’s Long Wharf and climb aboard the Lucky Catch lobster boat. You can cruise with real Maine lobsterman through scenic Casco Bay to learn all about baiting and hauling traps. If you’re lucky, you’ll trap your own dinner at a deeply discounted price. The Portland Lobster Company will then cook your catch for you, butter included. Thankfully, you don’t have to be too lucky to catch one of these cruises. Lucky Catch Cruises depart from Long Wharf several times a day, May through October.
Known as one of the best examples of an Italian Villa mansion in the States, the Victoria Mansion was built between 1858 and 1860. Also known as the Morse-Libby House, it was the summer home of two Maine natives, Ruggles Sylvester Morse and Olive, his wife. The couple made their fortune in New Orleans through luxury hotels but left their architectural legacy in Portland. Architect Henry Austin from New Haven, CT, designed this spectacular example of an American vacation home.
In the mood for some island hopping? Casco Bay Lines offers year-round ferry service to Portland’s surrounding islands.

While you’re there, don’t miss the Umbrella Cover Museum, the only museum of its kind. If you want a truly unforgettable cruising experience, Casco Bay Line really delivers with its mail boat runs, where you can sightsee from a working boat as it delivers islanders’ mail.

HEALTH & WELLNESS
Inner and outer wellness is ingrained in our culture, practiced by our team, and shared with each and every guest we meet.
Each service begins with a stress-relieving scalp, neck and shoulder massage proven to reduce stress, muscle tension and low energy.
By merging holistic well-being with superior grooming services, we can provide men with a deeper, more valuable experience that touches their hair – and their hearts.
Cobblestone streets and brick sidewalks lead you to the brass-plated ‘M’ at 8 City Center.
There, you are greeted by a salon coordinator who hangs your coat, offers you a welcome drink and escorts through the salon to our comfort lounge.
Exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and a billiards table remind you that this isn’t your father’s barbershop.
Rustic wooden shelves are lined with The Art of Shaving© and Aveda Men products. Jazz music fills the air. The reclining couch and massage chair face a 48” flatscreen TV.
All we ask is that you put your feet up and take a moment to inhale the masculine fragrance of woody Sandalwood and bright Cypress as you wet your whistle.
We welcome you to luxury – in every sense of word.
PRODUCTS WITH PURPOSE
Aveda is a cruelty-free brand, one of the many reasons we are co-branded so strongly. Since our inception in 2004, it was our founders mission to partner with a product line that shared our values regarding testing on animals. We do not support, sell or use any products who test on animals. Our products are “people-tested.” Because after all, we (the humans) are the ones who produce, profit and benefit from them.
Likewise, we believe in the pursuit of a sustainable environment. The inspiration for doing so can be found in nature – in the wild world we live in. Environmental responsibility is something to be valued. Aveda is the first beauty company to market manufacturing products with 100% wind power.
This use of renewable energy will help offset the carbon footprint we are inevitably leaving behind. At the Mensroom, we understand that nature can work for both a sustainable future and a better bottom-line.
