Portland is one of New England's most attractive and welcoming cities. Perched overlooking a rock studded bay, Portland is your classic seaside town with excellent fish and sushi restaurants. There's also a strong pub and nightlife tradition. For a day excursion, you can't beat Peaks Island.

Portland is a very fun city, with something for everyone! The dining options range from a lobster roll on the dock to memorable upscale restaurants. In the summer, take a walk around the Old Port area, with its charming cobblestone streets and funky shops and great street performers

I absolutely loved this city, spent two days there and did as much beer tourism as possible. For such an old port city, Portland has a very modern food scene with reasonable prices! I've found more craft beer in Portland than anywhere in California.

Portland is the old capital of Maine. This is also the biggest city of the Maine. You can visit it in 1 day only. The old port is the most beautiful place. Take a walk near the water and go to the old Downtown. Other neighboorhoud are less interesting.

One of my favorite trips. So tranquil and quiet. Very beautiful and green. You can drive through the back roads and never get bored. I loved driving on the road by the water and just stopping every now and then to take pictures of the lighthouses. I will definitely go back.

This is the second Portland in the USA, even though it was founded 200 years before Portland OR. Once a very busy port city but in the days of sail, the harbor was often filled wirth 200 ships. The waterfront street (Commercial St.) with he old fish and lobster warfs on the seaseid (the Place used to smell terribly of old fish. A variety if good bars and restaurants line the 8 blocks along th waterfronet, including a big ferry converted to a great posh restaurant (DeMillo's). Gilbert's Seafood shack is also there as well as artisan Irish pubs all around the area. Portland Airport (PWM) has doubled in size and not gets some pretty good 1 stop connections to the South and West and Europe. A big parking garage keeps your car under cover or you can stay a night at the Airport Hilton and leave your car in their lot 2 weeks, free as well a ferry you back nd forth.

Portland is a great, funky little town that reminds me of a smaller Burlington, VT or Madison, WI (i.e. liberal and awesome), except with an ocean view. Terrific music, restaurants, and shopping downtown, with impressive natural wonders and hikes a short drive away. Drive a little further north to get to the famous Freeport Outlets, where LL Bean has an entire campus to explore.
