Love this place. Beautiful, friendly, plenty to see. Very walkable but we did do the old fire engine city tour. It was $20 each. They only take 12 - 13 people at a time so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Local coffee shop/gift shop directed us to a gluten free bakery where we got chocolate eclairs. Very good!

Portland was the sleeper for me. I mean, I knew it had a bit of a following, and a cult like love for the city and I get it now, I really do. I loved Portland. Pretty much everything about it was right up my alley. As a Chef, it's an exceptional food town, even voted the Number 1 Food Town in the whole of the U.S. by Bon Appétite, so that's gotta count for something. I loved it's lively hustle and bustle, the Old Port part of town is where we milled about mostly. The working wharf area was awesome, very active but still relaxed. Got some great clam rolls at Rosie's on Fore Street. We then decided to play tourist and got a trolley tour that went from Portland out to Portland Head Light, with numerous sights along the way. Our driver was super knowledgeable, informative, friendly, and most of all, FUN! He really made the little trip something special. We loved it

Found a doughnut shop making donuts out of mashed potatoes! There were twenty people waiting in line to enter the store. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s great to wander about a town and see what you can find.
