Old port is fun! Cobbled streets - not everywhere - but you can find them. Historic architecture. Density friendly. Nice shops. Great restaurants. Friendly people. Awesome street scenes. The harbor. Yeah!

Old Town seems to be the place to be. That's where the best restaurants are and boat tours that were available when we were there.

We drove past the old port and could not walk along as the storm was continuous during my stay in Portland. I was able to see the port from a distance and I could tell how interesting the route along those yachts is. Based on others' recommendations, it is a beautiful walk on a sunny day!

The Old Port in Portland, Maine has become increasingly popular over the past 10 years or so, and with good reason. There is lots to see and do here. There are new restaurants opening up, lots of shopping, ferry boats to take you all over the coast, and plenty of parking. Our most recent visit was to meet friends who... More

Old Port is a very cute little town, complete with more bars and shops than you could ever see in six months! The people were unbelievably friendly too.

We had the freshest seafood imaginable, wandered through the shops on cobblestone streets and strolled along the waters of Casco Bay.

The Old Port has 5 vertical streets and numerous horizontal streets to explore. You can walk for hours of enjoyment with retail choices, bars and restaurants. The place is gorgeous charming and historic, at one time being the largest port for imports in the USA (around 1860 I think). There are numerous wharfs to wander around get closer to the... More

My husband and I visited New England for a long weekend and decided to spend St. Patrick's day in Portland, Maine. The downtown area of Portland is very interesting and despite the cold wandered the streets for a bit. We decided to stop for dinner and watch a basketball game at the Old Port. We each had the lobster special... More
