Maine Travel Series – Portland Part 2


Welcome back to my Maine travel series! I'm picking it up where we left off.

We previously went to visit several lighthouses including the Port Head Lighthouse. After we decided to head to the old port/waterfront historic district and explore.

The waterfront area was so charming and had a very welcoming atmosphere! I have many photos of street views, buildings, and docks below! We had plans to meet up with Phil's family (they live in New Hampshire but drove to us) for dinner at the "Butcher Burger". So we just explored till then!

- - - We stopped at the "Thirsty Pig" for a snack and beer. I fell in love with the friendly and creative atmosphere here in portland. - - -

- - - This Allagash White is a Belgian-style beer from an independent brewing company in Portland Maine. It was on all of the menus while we were visiting and it was so good! - - -

- - - Phil's family highly recommended we try "The Holy Donut" so the next day that's exactly what we did! Super tasty potato donuts and some more walking/window shopping around before we take off to drive north to Acadia. - - -

- - - We popped into a place called "Portland Hunt + Alpine Club" for a drink and to waste some time. LOVED the interior and overall atmosphere. The vibes were super chill and comforting. I had a drink that was so good that I'll never forget called Green Eyes. Gin, lime, green chartreuse, and egg white. SO GOOD. - - -

- - - The next day we started our drive to Acadia! We made a stop at a small town called Wisscaset to check out some local shops and stretch our legs. A lot of the food and activities up in Maine were at the end of their season and closing down for the winter. But we didn't run into too much trouble. - - -

- - - I had heard good things about Red's Eats lobster but they were closed for the season. - - -

- - - Another stop we made was Fort Knox. There we went up the observatory tower and walked the fort. The fort was very impressive in size and super cool to walk around the tunnels and corridors. - - -

Next up, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park!
