I think the joy of Portland, Maine is that there
are “city things” to do and typical Maine things to do. For example you
can go see one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the planet,
Portland Head Light
http://www.portlandheadlight.com/ and go to an art museum, Portland
Museum of Art
http://www.portlandmuseum.org in the same day.
Whale watching in
the Atlantic and shopping at a Mall or see a life-size chocolate Moose
at Len Libbies and visit a floating restaurant, DiMillo’s. The
uniqueness and the possibilities are endless. In a world of strip malls
and homogenous restaurants Portland stands out from the crowd.
As a brief side note it should be pointed out that
the area around the Maine mall consists largely of chain type
restaurants and stores. But even there you can find places like Sebago
In downtown Portland you can meander the streets
and visit block after block of unique, quirky stores, all this and
you’re right next to the ocean. Watch the teenagers ride their
skateboards around Post Office Park or watch the ponies at Scarborough
Downs, it’s really up to you.
