    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.

    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.

    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.

    From summer sun to storm watching in Cape Elizabeth

    Summer is divine in Cape Elizabeth, with warm temperatures and minimal rainfall. Plus, Portland's social calendar peaks, which makes it a great time to enjoy festivals, concerts, and other events. Unsurprisingly, winters in Maine can be cold, wet, and incredibly windy. That said, there’s something special about cozy Cape Elizabeth vacation rentals during the colder months. Stroll along your own private beach, then warm up in the hot tub. If romance is on the cards, why not stoke the log fire, open a bottle of wine, and watch the wild weather roll by?

    Maine is famous for its rocky coastline, and Cape Elizabeth doesn’t disappoint. The town is anchored by a trio of coastal parks, each with its own set of unique attractions. Explore historic Fort Williams Park, soak up the views in Two Lights State Park, and walk the mile-long arc of Crescent Beach State Park. Maine is big on conservation, with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust protecting more than 560 acres of land. The area is dotted with hiking trails, picnic sites, and public recreation areas, so pack your sunscreen and discover the allure of New England.
