The Most Beautiful Towns in America

Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Caitlin Morton of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 20: From streets filled with Victorian-era homes to classic rocky coastlines, the scenery of Portland is truly unparalleled—and you can't visit without stopping by the Portland Head Light (pictured), which affords some of the best ocean views around. The town also entices you to extend your stay with accommodations like the Press Hotel, housed in the former Portland Press Herald building. Let's not ignore the fact, either, that Portland's ratio of restaurants to people is insane (in a good way), so take advantage: We recommend Eventide Oyster, Honey Paw, Central Provisions, and Portland Lobster Company—you know, just to get you started.
