5 Unexpected Travel Tips for Portland, Maine

Sure, there’s lobster, but with a seaside locale and bustling art scene, Portland is far from a one-trick pony. If you’re heading north to the city by the sea, here are five quick tips you may not find in your guidebook.

Friday Night Fallback: If you’ve had your fill of craft beer, head a few miles south and catch a vintage flick at the Saco Drive-In Theater. Featured films range from summertime blockbusters to old-school cult classics.

Top Urban Hike: For a quintessential taste of Portland, hike the beloved Back Cove trail, a seaside stroll with a stunning view of the harbor and city.

Best Local Nosh: In a city of top-notch eateries, the jewel in the crown is Fore Street—a James Beard Award-winning restaurant that touts the freshest local ingredients, and an eye-popping menu that changes daily.

Coolest View: Need a moment to kick back and enjoy the coastal vibe? Head to Fort Allen Park, a scenic promenade overlooking Portland Harbor.

Craftiest Beer Bar: If you’ve got a weakness for hops, head to In'Finiti Fermentation & Distillation, a brewery and distillery that features a spacious bar where you can sample the selection.
