If you long for an intimate family experience that your loved ones remember for a lifetime, start the bonding with an RV rental in Portland. At RVshare, you can take your pick of motorhomes and campers. Class A, B and C motorized campers are complete and don't have to be towed.
The Class A motorhome rentals in Portland are reserved for the elite. These luxurious tour buses can accommodate eight passengers like your very own private yacht on wheels. They come complete with spacious kitchens, bathrooms, beds, and home entertainment systems. There is plenty of room for storage to carry all the equipment that you could possibly ever need on your adventure.
When you choose Class C RVs, you can often find all of the same features at a discount. The Class C is more affordable because these models are built on an economical truck platform. Class C motorhomes can be just as spacious and may be easier to drive for some.
Although the Class B models are smaller than Class A and C, you can find luxurious, high-end brands that deliver great handling and amenities. These touring vans are ideal for small families and can carry several passengers in the back while you cruise from state to state.
The camper rentals in Portland that you tow behind a vehicle are a phenomenal value. If you own a sturdy pickup truck or you're willing to rent one, a hitch-on camper can serve all the same purposes as a motorcoach. You have even greater flexibility with a camper because you can park it and drive around town in your truck.
People love fifth-wheel campers, toy haulers, travel trailers and pop-up campers. A pop-up camper rental from Portland is a great way to haul light and think big. These campers pop up and expand once you reach your campground destination. Since you cannot carry passengers in the back of a hitched RV, it is only logical to compact it when it's not in use for aerodynamics and improved fuel economy.
There is nothing like resting your bones at a campground. We highly recommend Paradise Park Resort Campground if you are in the Portland, Maine, region. It is just steps away from the Old Orchard Beach and sits on 40 acres of walkable woods with two heated swimming pools. They also have a hot tub, an arcade and miniature golf courses nearby. Look forward to movie night, and feel free to fish or take a paddleboat around the bay.
The Acadia National Park is your premier choice for experiencing the wildlife in Maine. You can snap photos of whales, moose, bears, heron, and seagull, among other creatures. Visit the craggy beaches and the highest point on the East Coast, Cadillac Mountain. Once you are done exploring, you can visit the touristy Bar Harbor bay town on the other side of the Mount Desert Island. If you need more excitement, visit Baxter State Park in northern Piscataquis County with its panoramic vistas and mountains.
Storing your RV is cheap and easy. For as low as $88 a month, you can find storage facilities, such as Prime Storage, Naples Self-Storage, Life Storage and All American Self-Storage, in the perimeter cities just outside of Portland. This allows you to take a quick flight up to Iceland or even to Greenland for a gem hunt.
You never have to worry about sanitation issues when you are visiting Portland, ME. There are dumpstations all over the place. Meadowledge RV Resort, Hid'n Pines Family Campground, Sebago Lake State Park and Shamrock RV Park Inc. are just a few that are nearby.
Aside from the idyllic state and national parks, the Portland region has a lot more to offer. Relax and enjoy the cosmos like never before at the Southworth Planetarium. The International Cryptozoology Museum should be the next stop on your scientific schedule. This museum has exhibits that feature exotic, hidden and strange creatures. Follow the forensic clues to figure out what mythical beasts and ancient creatures might look like.
There is always live music playing at the Portland House of Music. In addition, you are sure to find someone celebrating Maine's prized lobsters any time of the year or the beer in Portland. For unique sports in Maine, check out the Adur bathtub race or the Maine Red Claws, a basketball team that develops talented prospects for the Boston Celtics.
Interstate 95 stretches all the way up to the northern tip of Maine and to Canada. I-495 creates an interesting detour between Augusta and Portland. Routes 201, 1 and 6 complete the circuit. The main roads are relatively well-kept and smooth, but the bridges and rural roads are noted for their deficiencies.
