Cape Elizabeth is home to scenic Fort Williams State Park, the picturesque Portland Head Light, and miles of coastal waterfront. Cape Elizabeth is well-known as a prime area for tourism and year-round living, offering public beaches and an excellent school system. Cape Elizabeth also hosts many charming multi-acre inland homes, some of which reside on working farms and coastal homesteads. Located just across the bridge from the city of Portland and all its amenities!
Fort Williams Park attracts people throughout the year, offering 94 acres of land along the Atlantic Ocean. Once an active fort during WWI and WWII, the facility has now been reclaimed and is used by tourists and locals seeking a great place to relax under the sun. Cape Elizabeth’s Portland Headlight is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. The Portland Headlight was commissioned by George Washington in 1787 as the first lighthouse in the United States. At Two Lights State Park you can view Casco Bay and the two lighthouses for which the park is named. At Crescent Beach State Park, you can go swimming, boating, or fishing. It is a popular spot for families because the crescent of the mile-long beach keeps big waves at bay.
