Portland offers all the amenities of the big city, including the arts district -- home to several galleries and museums including the Portland Museum of Art, waterfront views, museums, parks, elegant hotels and diverse shopping opportunities. Ferry docks provide cruises to Casco Bay's hundreds of islands, as well as whale watches and relaxing dinner cruises.\n\nFor the athlete or nature buff, there is certainly no shortage of outdoor activities. This part of Maine offers plenty of woods for strolling, rivers for canoeing and mountains for skiing. There's also this little thing called the Atlantic Ocean, which is perfect for fishing! The combination of beautiful rocky Maine coastline, hundreds of islands and countless sand and mud flats makes Casco Bay the ideal environment for striped bass, mackerel and blue fish. For the adventurer, going just a few miles offshore you can fish for cod and haddock, as well as several kinds of tuna.\n\nWithin walking distance to hospitals and Portland's historic Old Port, one of the most successful revitalized warehouse districts in the country, you will find Danforth Heights Apartments.\n\nDanforth Heights Apartments is a 166-unit family housing community with 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments.
