About Portland, Maine

Portland has a thriving waterfront in the heart of downtown that is a hodgepodge of condos, fish markets, and ferry docks. Bordered by Maine's rocky coast to the north, and miles of white, sandy beaches to the south, the city offers hiking, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, and fishing, and to the west and north lies some of the best skiing in the world. This is Maine, "the way life should be".

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!

Great port, great city. Went on a trolley tour and had the best tour guide. He was so informative and funny as well. Unfortunately I don't have his name but he was with Portland Discovery City and Lighthouse tour.

We were able to do a lot in the cruise port area. Took the Casco Bay Ferry out to a few islands and learned a bit about the area. Had a great Lobster lunch at the Portland Lobster Company and walked around the streets, looking in a few art shops.
