Best area to stay in Portland Maine

Without a doubt the best area to stay in Portland Maine is Downtown, which is just 8km from Portland International Jetport. The brick pavements and cobblestone roads of the regenerated Old Port District invite you in to explore many book stores, craft stores, visit it´s mansions, historical museums, operas, iconic ballet shows, as well as an ample selection of the city´s food and brewery destinations.

 

If you are interested in art and history museums, visit the Portland Museum of Art which is home to the largest collection of European art north of Boston. If you are travelling with children, the Children´s Museum & Theatre of Maine is a great option, as well as the Portland Observatory, and the historic Victoria Mansion. For those looking to enjoy some theatre, the Merrill Auditorium and the State Theatre are the best choices.

 

The most emblematic places in the area are the Old Port, which offers some amazing shops and seafood restaurants, Commercial Street where you can do a spot of shopping or stop for lunch, and Fore Street which is considered by many to be the most popular street in Portland due to its fantastic offering of restaurants, wine cellars, clothes and souvenir shops, among much more. If you want to see a Portland Sea Dogs game, head to Hadlock Field. Many tourist routes can be explored on foot or by bike, but you will need to take the bus or go by car to get to some of the further afield places.

 

Maine is also a great option for sea lovers, as you can take one of the ferry´s leaving from Casco Bay for trips to explore the bay and nearby islands. Don´t miss out on a visit to Portland Head Lighthouse, which is considered the oldest lighthouse in the state of Maine, and is just 15 minutes away by car.
