Cape Elizabeth Information
About Cape Elizabeth
Historic Cape Elizabeth is a coastal town on an outcropping just south of Portland, Maine. The area is steeped in history, with colonial settlement dating back hundreds of years. The area was explored and mapped by John Smith (yes, that John Smith) in the early 1600’s and King Charles I himself dubbed the area Cape Elizabeth. After centuries as a farming and fishing community, Cape Elizabeth remains a quaint seaside town with plenty of rural residential charm and historic richness.
Things to Do in Cape Elizabeth
With access to the ocean and acres of rural land and national parks, Cape Elizabeth is the perfect spot for beach lovers, history buffs, and anyone looking for a peaceful slice of nature. In the warmer summer months (this is Maine, remember!) the ocean is prime for swimming, boating, and fishing. Head to Crescent Beach State Park where you’ll find a mile long beach with clean sand and calm waves perfect for swimming, thanks to its location on a protected cove. Kayak or canoe around the peaceful Great Pond. Fort Williams Park is a must, offering more than 90 acres of park grounds for biking, walking, sports and picnics, as well as the eponymous historic fort, the Goddard Mansion and Maine’s oldest lighthouse, (and one of the most popular local sights) Portland Head Light. If it’s lighthouses you’re looking for, Cape Elizabeth is the place. In addition to the Portland Head Light, you can visit Cape Elizabeth Light and, a little further north, Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse, Bug Light, and Ram Island Lighthouse.

Cape Elizabeth is technically part of Portland’s metropolitan area, and that means the heart of the bustling Maine metropolis is less than ten miles away.

About an hour north from Cape Elizabeth, you’ll find Maine’s capital city of Augusta and even more history. Check out New England’s oldest surviving wooden fort, the Old Fort Western, the Maine State Museum, or tour the governor’s mansion, the Blaine House, which was built in 1862 and is open to the public.
