While the area is unique and nicely maintained, once you move from the water area, you’ll find yourself in a vast collection of small shops SO, if shopping is your thing - you’ll LOVE it. We enjoyed the old port area where you could see...More

This area is a good place to get a feel for the town. There are cobbled streets, old buildings, a working port, wharves and a myriad of shops and restaurants - something for everyone.

We had a great time in Old Port, our hotel was just 2 blocks away from the docks and we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. We highly recommend taking the reasonably priced Discovery Land and Sea Tours--the employees are friendly, helpful, and...More

Awesome town. Brick streets, easy to get around, great mix of boutiques and name brand shops as well as coffee shops, drinking establishments and eateries. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Every storefront looks interesting and you want to go in, the only downside-can get hard to choose. People out & about all nights of the week

We really enjoyed strolling around the Old Port. The shops were all touristy, but the food and drinks are terrific in this area.

Spend a morning walking the docks. Being an active port, the docks are alive with commerce and tourists. Gives you a good feel of 'everyday' Portland.

EVO on Fore St was excellent and fun, small plates, eclectic food, good beer and wine, little pricey but worth it. Central Provisions on Fore St also was a good one and Andy's down on Commercial St.

So much depends on the dog and on what you want to do while you are in the Old Port. The Old Port area is famed for its diverse places to shop, dine, and drink. A dog may more OK for some, less OK for others. Exchange... More
