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.

Took the "Portland by land and sea" excursion, wonderful!! The schooner was beautiful and fast blazing along the coastlines. The bus ride to a lighthouse was nice with a REAL lobster roll and a whoopie pie from the lobster cart at the top of the hill as we looked out over everything, lands and sea.
Loved this port. We did The Best of Portland & Kennebunkport. It was a rainy day, but we had a great time and plan to return on our own to explore further.

Used lyft to cab to the oldest lighthouse ($10-15 from cruise terminal) and park. Highly recommend the cliff walk from the ruins to the lighthouse! We then cabbed again to the bug lighthouse and back to terminal. We then walked around old portland which is beautiful!
