The Portland waterfront is a charming and bustling quintessential New England seaport. Great for walking. Lots of shops and restaurants. It's cold in the winter though.

I walked a few blocks from our hotel to the port to take a look around. There was fresh snow on the ground and most of the boat slips were frozen. It was a beautiful landscape, and very enjoyable.

Great area for strolling, eating, window shopping, shopping. All are close by. We walked from the old Port to the Children’s Museum. Another day we walked from Old Poet to the Railroad Museum. We also took a bus to South Portland. It’s a walkable area.

The Old Port area of Portland is well worth exploring. Filled with interesting shops, delicious restaurants, and stunning views. Portland is a wonderful mix of funky, quaint, and thoroughly engaging.
