Not So "Off" Season

For the city of Portland, this time of year looks a lot different than it will 6 months from now. Tourists will be lining the streets...as well as taking up parking spots. Restaurants will have a wait, shops will be filled with people looking for that perfect item to bring home to remind them of their time in Maine.

Well, Portland Downtown has a way to get locals out and about rediscovering our city during a season where it could use a little extra love.

Introducing, 207 Day fittingly on February 7th, complete with a 207 Day Scavenger Hunt that will kick off this Friday, February 5th, and wrap up at 11:59pm on Monday, February 7th.
