A slice of New England

Fringed by rocky headlands and windswept beaches, Cape Elizabeth is perched on the shores of Maine’s Casco Bay. The town may be small, but there’s plenty to do if you’re in search of an authentic New England experience. Visit the iconic Portland Head Light, soak up seaside history in Fort Williams Park, and cool off at Crescent Beach. Traveling with Fido in tow? No problem. Not only are Cape Elizabeth vacation rentals a great way to enjoy a local experience, but plenty of them are also pet friendly.

Things to do

Cape Elizabeth’s wild and windswept

As one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world, a visit to Portland Head Light is a must. Sign up for a guided tour, and don’t forget to check out the museum and gift store on your way out – windswept selfies are optional. The lighthouse sits within Fort Williams Park, where you can explore the ruins of an old citadel that housed troops during World War I and II. For more ocean vistas, pack a picnic and spend the afternoon at Two Lights State Park. Perched high above the rocky coastline, it unlocks sweeping views over Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Activities

Discover Maine’s maritime roots in Cape Elizabeth

Hit the beach, or cruise Casco Bay with a scenic sail to Peaks Island or Great Diamond Island. Most trips depart from Portland, a 25-minute drive to the north. While you’re there, take a stroll around the trendy Old Port waterfront, soak up the views from the Western Promenade bluff, and visit the historic Victoria Mansion museum. Maine’s maritime history runs deep, and Cape Elizabeth is great place to soak it all up. Want to live and breathe Maine’s beach culture? With Cape Elizabeth vacation rentals, you can take your pick of storybook beach cottages.
