I recently had the opportunity to spend a few days in the original Portland. If you’ve never been to Maine or Greater Portland, I suggest you give it a try. It’s a charming city that has retained much of the Colonial-era architecture, cobblestone streets and some lively characters who call the city home.
As the name implies, there are plenty of lakes (over 1,000) in Lake County. Lake Minneola in Clermont is home to the Clermont Boathouse and Clermont Waterfront Park, as well as a 1,000-meter and 2,000-meter course for paddlesports or rowing and the oak-tree covered shoreline provides spectators with a great viewing area.
