A cute little square next to the hotel.
Our favorite street in Portland! As an effort to create outdoor space for local businesses to continue their operation during the pandemic, this street is completely closed off for vehicles. It is transformed into a quaint pedestrian street with outdoor cafes and bars. It really reminded us of Europe! We hoped the city would keep the street this way even after covid.
A charming cobblestone street filled with restaurants.
As a big port city, Portland has a long stretch of waterfront. Many of the piers are filled with restaurants, shops and art spaces.
Despite operating at limited capacity due to covid, this place blown us away. Both the dishes and the drinks were creative and delicious but never pretentious 👍
We ventured out back into the town center again in the evening. The twilight adds a bit more charm to this already charming city.
A great cocktail spot for a date or just hanging out with good friends on a breezy summer evening.
A super popular brunch place. We had to wait an hour for our takeout. The portion was huge (even by American standards) but we thought the food was just ok. Maybe it would have tasted better if we had dined in.
We turned our brunch takeout into a picnic with a nice view of the Bug Light.
You can’t get more classic Maine than the scenery at Portland Head Light. The view of the lighthouse is postcard perfect!
