Packed with 19th-century brick buildings, the Old Port is a Heritage-listed district of cobblestone streets and historic fishing piers in the heart of Portland. Today it’s home to one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants and bars offering picturesque views of the Fore River.
Stroll through the charming streets of the Old Port while admiring the historic buildings and browsing the locally-made handicrafts and souvenirs. Stop in at one of the bustling restaurants that dish up Maine specialties or purchase freshly-caught lobster and haddock from the Harbor Fish Market.
Want to see the Old Port from the water? Jump aboard an early-20th-century windjammer to get a different perspective on some of Portland’s most beautiful sights. Coincide your visit with the Old Port Festival when live music and parades ignite the neighbourhood, accompanied by local food, crafts and children’s activities.
The Old Port is adjacent to the waterfront in Downtown Portland and well-serviced by local buses. Portland International Jetport is a 15-minute drive away.
