The idea of traveling to Portland ME for an extended weekend at the end of August sounded perfect and is just what we did.  My girlfriend and I jumped on board our Sun Country Airlines flight, hailed an Uber into Old Port and settled in to the salty sea air and sunshine!  We were very pleased with the walkability of the town with so many micro breweries and fun places to eat –  this is very much a foody paradise.  Our favorite for coffee and wine: The Maker’s Gallery

We filled our days with a Lighthouse Tour and Tall Ship Sailing on Casco Bay and were lucky enough to stumble on the Aristocats show put on by volunteers with rescue cats –  this show truly made our weekend and was so much fun! Our mornings were spent walking along the coast taking in the beautiful canvas of the bay.  Truly a place to unwind, relax, and just be is my definition of Old Port.  A place were you will feel at home from moment of arrival, a place I will certainly land at once again ( just because I already have my air ticket booked for my next visit) and am so excited to explore what we did not have time for this trip.

As Henry Wadsworth Longfellow says in his poem My Lost Youth

 Often I think of the beautiful town that is seated by the sea
