Favorite thing: <font color=0066CC size=+1>Learn a little about the history of <b>Portland</b> - English settlers established themselves on the peninsula in 1632 and the bay area became part of the <b>Massachusetts Bay Colony</b> in 1652. After the Revolutionary War, Portland developed into a thriving commercial port. In 1820 when Maine was admitted into the Union, the city of <b>Portland</b> was its' first capital. Three years later, the first steamship from Boston arrived and this was the beginning of regular passenger service between the two port cities.
