Old Port, Portland
(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
At the intersection of Exchange and Fore Streets, discover the historical waterfront district of Old Port. This tiny neighborhood covers only a few blocks, but connects the working waterfront with an area for shopping, dining, entertainment, and residential units. Stroll the cobblestone streets to see the area's local boutiques and shops, taste some of Maine's well-known lobster dishes, or experience a true ocean-to-table restaurant. For a closer look at the working part of the district, walk along Commercial Street to see the waterfront in action. With our custom trip planner, Portland attractions like Old Port can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
