We spent several hours in late afternoon just strolling past the boats, bars, restaurants, shops. Had some good live music, Some fun shops. It was cool but sunny and being close to the ocean added an extra benefit. There was a cruise ship docked, so there were lots of people around, but we didn't feel overly crowded. Try one of the donut shops for potato donuts. We loved Portland and this area in particular.

We spent an afternoon in the Old Port area, it was a great, fun time. We shopped in the cute little shops, ate fresh off the boat lobster rolls at a seafood shack on the water, enjoyed Maine potato donuts at the Holy Donut on one of the side streets, had a beer in one of the many breweries in the area, took in the scenic views and fed parking meters all day...the one downside to the area. Parking is very expensive in the parking garages and lots and your only other choice is to feed the meters every two hours. There are also a lot of boat and land tours out of the area.

It was so relaxing sitting outside enjoying the weather with an adult beverage, good food and great company! I look forward to a return visit.

It was so relaxing walking around and viewing the old ports that are in full use. You can catch lobster and have it cooked next door to the boat. The most pleasant people are eager to answer any questions. Great restaurants!!!

Lots of great shops to visit, restaurants to try, people to watch! Parking is a bit pricey, but it's such a great area it's worth it!

Shops and galleries and breweries and restaurants and boat tours. Lots to do, so many food and beverages options to try! Cool cobblestone alleyways with more stores to check out. Couldn't do it all in one day.

Particularly if it's a nice day - nice views, great shops and tons of restaurants all in this area! Great place to stoll down by the water.

They have turned this place into a true cruise ship port stop. The shops are very touristy. Lovely architecture, but since pot has been legalized, a little element detected that makes you watch your purse a little more carefully.
