What’s a getaway without crashing waves, great eats, and quaint hotels with killer views? This week’s edition of Travel Attaché brings us to the salty shores of Portland, Maine, where the glow of lighthouses and the sound of oyster shuckers hard at work beckon, drawing visitors from far and wide for a quick weekend visit or extended stay. Check in at boutique hotel favorite, The Press Hotel, a former printing plant evoking its 1920s past with a touch of modernity -- all in the name of journalistic spirit -- where light pours in and the property’s food and drink scene does not disappoint. After a post-travel pick-me-up at Inkwell lounge, head to the water for a quick cruise, hitting a brewery or local oyster haunt on the way back. Save room on the itinerary for a trip out to Cape Elizabeth, Portland’s hidden gem of a next-door neighbor, where stunning resort Inn by the Sea stands surrounded by breathtaking ocean views. Luxury Attaché clients enjoy exclusive perks at Inn by the Sea, including upgrades upon arrival, daily full in-room breakfast, spa credits, and more -- contact your Travel Attaché to arrange transport, accommodations, and full itinerary.
