Excellent area to wander around, including many cute shops. Would recommend avoiding Sundays, at least before tourist season, as quite a few places were closed.

The air around the Olde Port is valuable. Find a spot in an alley and just spend a few minutes taking in deep breaths. I prefer the alley by the Fish Market. The markets, restaurants, shops and taverns are the best in Maine. Indulge yourself...More

We have visited Portland several times and love the City. The Old Port is a great place to walk around. Would recommend a walking / foodie tour to layer the experience.

This is a lovely port area with lots to see. There is a little train which takes you round the bay further on. I would recommend that.

My daughter and I enjoyed walking all around this area. The shops added interest. And the views offered nice options for her love of taking photographs. It was freezing out along the shore but we had a blast!

Few nice shops around, with great pottery and T-shorts. The cobblestone streets are lovely. Plenty of places to eat seafood.

Some great seafood restaurants along this way. Also is the location for the Casco Bay ferry. Take the mail run and enjoy the view of the islands.

The architecture is wonderful including some old brick, cobblestone streets. Lots of different ethnic foods and of course lots of seafood. Definitely a good area to just bop around for a weekend.
