My husband and I will be visiting Portland in late October. What are some landmarks, activities, food trucks or restaurants we have to visit?!
Portland Head Light lighthouse in nearby Cape Elizabeth; Victoria Mansion; Portland Observatory; Old Port District; Henry Wadsworth Longfellow House; Osher Map Library at Univ. of Southern Maine; maybe a Maine Sea Dogs baseball game if they're still playing; Portland Museum of Art (depending on what's on display while you're here); any concert featuring the Kotzschm ar Organ at Merrill Auditorium; a walk on the multi-use trail around Back Cove; a Casco Bay Lines ferry ride to one (or more) of the Casco Bay Islands (or take the mail boat run to see several of them in one trip); take the easy drive up I-95 to the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray if its still open while you're here (hours on their website); dozens and dozens of restaurants depending on cuisine and atmosphere you're looking for (Portland has the reputation of being a "foodie" city with more restaurants per capita than any other city in the US -- bon apetit !!).
Thank you so much for the helpful suggestions!! I'm excited to explore!!
