The area also offers many fine B&B locations for your consideration.

Attractions & Dining

Staying in the “Old Port” area is ideal for most people. There are hundreds of great restaurants and ample nightlife options – all just a stroll away in this highly walkable, waterfront section of town.

Two highly recommended restaurants are Scales (Old Port) or Lobster Shack (Cape Elizabeth). And if you’re looking for gourmet dining, Fore Street (Old Port) is consistently voted as one of the “best” in America

Portland’s waterfront is the gateway to Casco Bay, and a ferry system runs 18-hours a day, year-round to offer visitors access to the charm, shopping, history, and dining of the nearby islands.

We suggest exploring the Portland/Casco Bay tourism website to plan your outing: Greater Portland & Casco Bay.
