Less Than 24 Hours in Portland, Maine


Portland, Maine is not easy to see in less than 24 hours. I am very glad that we made the quick drive up to Maine to get a taste of what Portland has to offer but I will most definitely be back.


Good Eats and Drinks

Eventide Oyster Co.
We arrived in Portland just in time for dinner. We of course had to try out some sea food while in Maine, so we went to Eventide Oyster Co. The small restaurant boasted a broad selection of oysters as well as other seafood. Portions were small but tasty.

Sebago Brewing Company
After our delicious but small meals at Eventide, we decided to give the brewery connected to our hotel a try. We ate appetizers and enjoyed cocktails to finish our evening in Portland. It was the perfect way to end our day.

Exploring 

Fort Allen Park
Fort Allen Park is located in the Eastern Promenade and was the site of Fort Allen, which was active during the Revolutionary War. The park is loaded with history and has a great view of the bay. It was only a short walk from our hotel and provided us a morning filled with history.

Portland Head Light
The iconic lighthouse is a must do in Portland, Maine. This was by far my favorite activity that we did while in Portland because the scenery was amazing. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I could not get enough of this view



I cannot wait to go back to explore this city further. By no means did my husband and I see everything we wanted but I am still glad we were able to spend even a little time in Portland, Maine.
