You can visit two lighthouses in the coastal city of South Portland. The Spring Point Ledge Light warns ships away from a jagged outcropping and ushers them safely into Portland Harbor. At Bug Light Park, located at the site of a World War II Liberty shipyard, you can tour the Cushing's Point House Museum and Portland Breakwater Light (affectionately called "Bug Light"). You can also visit nearby Willard Beach, which has lifeguards.

In town, you can go shopping at the Maine Mall or one of the many retail outlets in South Portland's commercial area. You can see a show at Portland Players or Lyric Music Theater. You can also go golfing at one of the city's public golf courses.
