Gde ćete biti

South Portland, Maine, Сједињене Државе

These are the things I recommend and like to do.

Near the House: Beaches, lighthouses, forts, biking and more
Willard Beach is within walking distance from the house and about 4 blocks away. It is a great sandy beach, with little boats in the cove, 1800 Fort Preble to the north of the beach and historic fish shacks to the south. The beach has bathrooms, showers, a playground and a shack bar. Grab some beach chairs, towels and sunblock and head down to the beach to relax and watch schooners, ferry boats and tankers cruise by all day. This is a locals beach and usually pretty quiet.
Bug Light and SpringPoint Light are within walking distance and about 4 blocks away. This is a perfect place to view Casco Bay and the Portland City scape. The Green Belt bikeway is right across the street. Grab a couple of bikes and head to Bug Light Park to the left or into South Portland or the Portland Old Port just a couple of miles away to the left. The Green Belt takes you through quiet neighborhoods to your destination.
Portland Head Light is a spectacular view and about 2.5 miles from the house. It is a nice park with a cliff walk in which you can see a half dozen or so light houses. They highly rated fresh lobster roll food trucks as well as ice cream vendors.
Kettle Cove and Crescent Beach about 6 miles from the house. This is a cute little cove with a great homemade ice cream stand. The cove has lobster boats off shore and is at the northern edge of Crescent Beach. Crescent Beach is long and friendly and has a snack bar there and bathrooms. There is admission unless you walk on from Kettle Cove.
Two Lights is about 7 miles from the house and is home to the Lobster Shack. You can have great casual seafood there on park benches overlooking the ocean with a couple of lighthouses for backdrops. Pretty reasonably priced for being able to sit at a table, outside, next to the ocean, and a famous lighthouse behind you.

Tours:
Mailboat Tour is perhaps the best bang for your buck if you have about 3 hours to kill and want to see a dozen or so islands, briefly stop on an island and see a bunch of lighthouses. It is about 16 dollars and lasts about 3 hours with sometimes a commentary about the island life as you drop the mail and provisions off to the island dwellers. They leave promptly at 10 every day.
Ghost Tours are always fun wherever you are visiting and the Portland tour is just as fun. They meet at the ferry terminal and take you on a ghost tour of the city for an hour or two. These tours are generally at night.
Duck Tours are, what can I say, goofy but fun.

Islands:
Mackworth Island is a nice island walk and is just a couple of miles from Portland and has a small bridge so you can drive there.
Peaks Island hosts a few restaurants and ice cream stands but besides that it is a nice quiet island that has bikes to rent and a ferry that shuttles people on the hour. P.s. you can rent go-karts there.


Food and Drinks: SOPO:
David's 388: This has been my favorite restaurant for over a decade. If you are in the mood for a very reasonably priced romantic restaurant that smells of freshly baked bread, garlic, and rosemary this is the place for you. It is quiet, romantic and delicious. My favorites there are duck, filet mignon and the osso bucco. They have a great wine menu to accompany the meat, fish and homemade pasta dishes. I also recommend the brussel sprouts and garlic, rosemary, and truffle fries. Blocks from the house.
Foulmouthed Brewery: Great beer and cocktails, outside seating and funky, fun, good food. 1 mile from the house.
Sea Dogs Brewery: Good beer, good bar food and outside, screened dining. 2 miles from my house.
Saltwater Grill: Go for the view of the Portland cityscape and to eat on the water. The food is good but it is a bit pricey. 1 mile from the house.
Scratch Bakery: It is just great, just great. Scratch is a famous bakery around here. Grab a pastry and coffee and walk a couple of blocks to the beach. Few blocks from the house.
Terra Cotta Pasta Co.: This is the most reasonably priced, high quality food place on the east coast. Their soups, sandwitches, quiches, Italian dishes, and pastries are just wonderful. This is a high quality food store with some seating inside and out. It is not a restaurant, just a good place to pop in for a snack or take-away for a picnic or dinner. Warning, they do not generally have prices on the food, feel free to ask or just pick out whatever you want and risk it. Your bill will be way cheaper than you would have guessed. It is just so good.
Taco Trio: This is pretty darn good Mexican food cooked right in front of you. You are going to have to drive 8 hours before you hit a better Mexican restaurant. They are big on takeout, but have indoor and outdoor dining, and just opened a new bigger place just a few blocks away. 1 mile from the house.

Food and Drinks: Portland:
Porthole: This is a fun kitschy place on the water in Portland. Great food, big food, good drinks, big deck, music on weekends. One word, vintage. Ok, two more kitschy and hip.
Blyth and Burrows: Nice bar with a second hidden speakeasy bar if you can find it. Hint: Wait for a local to approach one of the book cases and suddenly disappear.
Duck Fat: They cook their fries in duck fat and you can dip them in gravy. Everything else is pretty darn delicious as well.
Becky’s Diner: Yes, I know it is a diner, but it is a kitschy, old school, friendly, big awesome food, cheap prices type diner. So, you are in a historic working port town in New England. It seems fitting to eat there along with all the locals. Also vintage.
Commercial Street: Pretty much any seafood restaurant you try will have fish that was caught that morning. All awesome, none are bad.
300+ Portland: There are over 300 restaurants in Portland. They are all great in their own way and all worth trying depending on what you are in the mood for and willing to pay.
Breweries: Portland has a dozen or so breweries. There are old school breweries that have been around and established for a while and are all good. The newer ones have a hipper vibe and more creative and tasty beers. I like Foulmouthed and Liquid riot but there are so many others.
Room Restaurants: Grill Room, Front Room, Corner Room. They are kind of pricey but the kind of pricey you are ok with, because after you finish you will begrudgingly say, yeah that was worth it. These are not flash-in-the-pan foofoo restaurants. They really hit it out of the park every time
Boda: Just a cool hip restaurant that serves unique and yummy small plate dishes. Nice atmosphere and bar.
Dive Bar: Ruskies is the best dive bar in Portland. Big food, cheap prices. Everyone is pretty friendly there. Breakfast, lunch or dinner all day. Seriously big good food. Not joking about that.

Must Dos:
Get on the water: Mailboat Tour: Just do it. I am from here and still love it.
Get near the water: Bug Light and Portland Head Light: Just stunning views that will make you say wow. Spring Point Light is on a jetty you can walk out on.
Get in the water: Willard beach: Grab a couple of chairs, relax and count the schooners going by. The beach and views are really beautiful.
Stroll the town: If you want a good taste of the city, start around the ferry terminal, follow Commercial towards the shops and take a to right on Moulton, left on cobble stoned Warf St., right on Union, right on Fore, left on Exchange, left on Middle for a block. When you see the bronze statue of a man shaking hands with a lobster, across the street is a pedestrian walk which brings you to monument square. Follow Congress up ( to the left) as far as you want to go and maybe stop at the museum on the way. Also parking at the Eastern promanade and walking along the narrow gage railroad tracks along the water is a nice stroll. Parking at the Western promenade and just walking around admiring the beautiful huge historic houses is a wonderful way to get exercise and see nice houses.
Stroll the neighborhood: A nice stroll around the neighborhood would begin at the house, walk up Preble St. to the stop sign and take a left on Fort St. for one block and a right on Myrtle Ave. You should quickly see the water before you and the view keeps getting better the closer you get. On the beach, to your right are the fish shacks. You should walk up there, the views are fantastic and you will see a few lighthouses and probably schooners. To the left, will take you along the beach to the rocky section. Head up the stairs and follow the coastal walk to Fort Preble and Spring Point Light. Continue to follow the water and walk through the marina, there is a doorway in the gate. Follow along the water looping around the marina, then when it ends hang a left which takes you to Bug Light Park road and to your left will be the park. At that point you are still very close to the house and can just follow the road back or hop on the green belt, either way you will see the house in a couple of blocks.
Holy Donut: You can fool yourself that these unbelievably delicious donuts are good for you because they are made of potato flour. Lemon zest is my favorite.

Entertainment:
Old Port: In the Old Port, it seems every other building has outside carousing and music. Just walk around until you hear something you like and go in. My favorite is still the Porthole.
There are a lot of free outdoor concerts and activities all summer, check the calendar.

Rainy Day Events:
Portland Museum of Art
Victoria Mansion
Freeport Outlets and LLBean Flagship Store

Groceries:
There is a Hannafords and Shaws grocery stores about a mile away down Broadway.

Day Trips:
Portsmouth, NH: ( 45 minutes): One of the prettiest port towns in America. It is just gorgeous.
Newburyport, MA: ( 60 minutes): One of the other prettiest port towns in America. Yup, just as gorgeous as Portsmouth. Caution, if you visit both towns in one day you are going to want to move to New England.
Kennebunkport ME: ( 20 minutes ): If it is good enough for a president.
Old Orchard Beach, ME ( 25 minutes ): Legend has it a mermaid made love to a biker bar and from that came Old Orchard Beach. Beautiful beach, honky tonk town. Just kidding about the legend.

Traveling on North:
If you are traveling North, like to Bar Harbor, I would suggest taking 295 to Brunswick and then picking up Rt 1. I love driving Rt. 1 and Rt. 1A but there is a lot of slow moving traffic and lights between Portland and Brunswick. You would be missing LLBean but you are in Maine but just look around, we are like a walking LLBean catalog in this state.
After and including Brunswick, you are going to hit one cute, adorable town after another. Highlights are Rockland, Camden and Belfast.
Personal note: As much as I like Boothbay Harbor as it is cute and quaint. It is very small and if you are pressed for time, I am not sure it is worth the long drive off Rt. 1 to get there. You are going to dive through a bunch of cute coastal towns right on Rt. 1, there is no real need to drive an hour out of your way to see another one. The extra time you get visiting Camden will make up for it.

Traveling on South:
If you are traveling south, feel free to hit any of the cute towns in Maine while traveling south like Kennebunkport and Ogunquit but when you hit Portsmouth NH. you should stop and visit that town. It is great. From the center of that town, after you have visited, because it is really nice, take Rt. 1B out of town, which will take you on a short drive over some little islands, and by historic forts, historic homes, yacht clubs, and a grand hotel. Rt 1B is short just a few miles and it will bump back into Rt. 1A. Take a left on Rt. 1A. I know at this point you are off the highway but this excursion will only take an extra half hour than taking the highway but it will be worth it. Rt. 1A travels along the coast with ocean views, beaches and cliff drive to your left and big mansions to your right. You will travel along until you hit Newburyport MA. You should visit that town as well. It is beautiful. After that drive, hop back on the highway and continue your journey.

Traveling on West:
I don’t usually go inland so you are on your own.
