Pros: I usually drive the 4 1/2 to my Relatives home in Minot, Maine an easy 40 minute commute to the Portland Station from their home. Just recovering from lower back surgery my back Dr. rather I still not drive for a couple of up to 3 weeks. He actually suggested the Train as I was going to be watching my cousins home and there dog while they took there 3 girls to Florida for a week. I went online and looked up the trip from the Westerly Train Station just 15 minutes from my home to Portland. The trip was $65.00 which is the same price I pay for a tank of gas if I drove one way. It was my first time on the Amtrak Train to Portland. It was a great trip to Boston Train Station South with an easy trip from South to North Station, I could of walked the mile but with a full back pack and recent back surgery I opted for a quick Cab Ride to North Station. I only had to wait 15 minutes to we departed North Station finishing up at Portland Station exactly on time at 2:20 pm where my cousin was waiting for me. I return from Portland to Westerly on January 5th I believe. Cons: Everything was satisfactory with my trip to Portland, Maine. Tips: N/A Everything was fine.

City Information


Westerly is famous for its gorgeous shorelines, and the beaches are just the beginning. In addition to local stores, fashionable pubs, and restaurants, Rhode Island's southernmost town has a lively downtown environment. The town enchanted Taylor Swift so much that she not only bought a house as a part-time residence but also wrote a song about it: The Last Great American Dynasty.

Give it a listen while strolling through Wilcox Park, with lovely scenery with an open meadow area surrounded by trees, a fish pond, monuments, and perennial gardens. The option to go for a trek nearby Napatree Point Conservation Area is also available. Then, finish your fun-filled day by getting a carload of friends and family and heading to the Misquamicut Drive-In for an outdoor movie.

The area's lodging options range from high-end luxury to eccentric, historic, and comfortable. Ocean House is one of only thirteen resorts in the world to receive triple 5-star certification, making it the best of the best. Perched high on the bluffs of Watch Hill and with a private beach and spa, it's hard to turn down Ocean House.

The Block Island State Airport, the Theodore Francis Green Airport in Providence, and the Westerly State Airport are all in Rhode Island, though not Westerly in particular. Amtrak, however, has trains right into the city coming from Boston, New York, Portland, New Haven, and Philadelphia.

Portland is Maine's largest city and, because of that, the main transportation hub in the state. From Portland, travelers can easily reach destinations such as Boston, Albany, and even Gainesville, Texas, by a combination of buses, trains, and ferries. And there’s plenty to do in the city, even if you’re traveling solo.

Since its foundation in 1786, Portland has recovered from no less than four major fires, creating a fascinating blend of old and new. The dedicated Arts District around upper Congress Street has a smattering of important museum collections, including the Portland Museum of Art, the state's oldest public art institution.

The West End hosts the majority of Portland's historic buildings, creating an olde worlde feel. However, the presence of several well-regarded schools and colleges ensures Portland remains one of the most vibrant small cities in the U.S.

After several years of hardship, the Old Port district has once again become the center of the action. Its attractive cobblestone streets and 19th-century red-brick warehouses now contain a selection of on-trend cafes, bars, and boutique stores. At the same time, it's still possible to watch the time-honored tradition of fishermen unloading their lobster pots onto the foreshore.

East of the downtown area, you'll find Munjoy Hill. It's a district with strong Irish and Italian roots, making it one of the best places in Portland to enjoy the authentic cuisine of Italy. It’s no wonder we named Portland one of our top vacation destinations in Maine.
