The 6 Best Things to Do in Portland, ME (& 8 Restaurants to Try)

Heading to Maine to visit either the Silver Therapeutics dispensary in Portland or South Portland? Do yourself a favor and plan a full day while you’re in the biggest city in the state—there’s no shortage of things to do in Portland.

The Forest City is teeming with sights to see, impressive waterway views, and, of course, saliva-inducing food. Check out some awesome things to do in Portland, Maine.

Grab coffee and breakfast to go at Tandem Bakery

If you get to town a bit early (our Portland dispensary opens at 10 AM daily), head over to Tandem Bakery. Their coffee is nothing short of amazing, and their breakfast sandwiches are out of this world. After you’ve nabbed your day-starter, take a stroll around the West End and Western Promenade.

Go island exploring on the Casco Bay Ferry

Portland is basically a peninsula surrounded by islands, such as Peaks Island, Cushing Island, and Great Diamond. If you feel up for a little island exploration, catch the Casco Bay Ferry for a ride to the island of your choice. The iconic ferry services all the islands in Casco Bay and runs pretty much 365 days a year.

Plan a venture to Mackworth Island

Speaking of islands, Mackworth Island in Falmouth is right outside Portland. This particular island offers snap-worthy views of Casco Bay from every angle. A 1.25-mile trail takes you completely around the perimeter of the island. And, you’re bound to enjoy the natural forested landscape.

Enjoy the best croissants ever at Belleville

After your scenic hike, you’re bound to be ready for a snack. Belleville at the top of Munjoy Hill on North Street is the perfect place to stop. You’ll walk away with the most satisfying croissant your mouth has ever encountered. Head a little further up the hill and catch a water view along the Eastern Prom.

Take a drive to Portland Head Light

The Portland Head Light—the MOST photographed lighthouse in the country—sits just a few miles south of downtown Portland. And, the lighthouse is positioned adjacent to Fort Williams Park. So, you could kill several hours exploring the shoreline and the sights within the park, such as Battery Keyes or Goddard Mansion.

Have the munchies?

Best Downtown Portland Restaurants

If you’re all about good food, your time spent in Portland will be memorable. Downtown Portland is nationally known for its food fare. We have to recommend the Two Heads Lobster Shack, which happens to be right on the rocky shores of the ara. This place has been around for a century, and it’s easy to see why. The food is delicious. But, even more cool, you get to enjoy your meal in view of a lighthouse, within earshot of the fog horn, and perched just over the water.
