South Portland is a lively and personable place. Lots of small restaurants, shops, parks, several lighthouses and lots more. It is less touristy and full of nice people who will be happy to see you.

While on a trolley tour we crossed the Casco Bay Bridge twice and had wonderful views of the Portland Port area and of our Carnival Sunshine Ship in Port.

Not sure why this bridge might be considered a must see sight. I've driven across it and it has nice views but not one of the more remarkable that I've driven over.

The bridge linking Portland with South Portland has four lanes of traffic and offers a great view of Portland Harbor. At times, the traffic will have to wait for the drawbridge to life and allow barges and other ships to pass through.
