This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. It was a very nice walk along the water's edge. There's a small patch of beach, and plenty of places to sit and look out over the bay at all the boats.

Take the dogs, but clean up if need be. Portland makes it easy by providing multiple trash cans and poop bags on dispensers.

The Eastern Prom (as locals affectionately call it) is the best place in Portland to go for a walk. It winds right along the ocean, and you can feel and smell the fresh sea air as you wander. It is open to walkers, bicyclists, and the occasional roller blader. East End Beach is right along it, and if you go... More

What a way to enjoy the Portland Symphony, the celebration of American and the fireworks. The sun was setting over Casco Bay...the ocean was twinkling, it was epic and divine.

We were here for the 4th of July celebration so it was a bit busier than normal with carnival food trucks, vendors and live music. This is a perfect place to take some scenic pictures or take a walk. About half mile walk from the Portland observatory.

We traveled to Portland with two dogs. The Eastern Promenade is a scenic placeto walk and give your dog an opportunity socialize with fellow canines and swim in Casco Bay.

This is an excellent running, walking, or biking path. It gives you great views of the bay, and you can't help but feel relaxed!

What a picturesque place. gentle sloping grassy areas to sit and gaze out at the water, the boats, the birds and the people. This is a perfect outdoor natural amphitheater for the upcoming July 4th parade and fireworks display

This is one of my favorite beaches to visit when I go home to Maine. It's small, but it offers you the idea that you can traverse the beach at your own pace. There is no vast expanse like at Old Orchard, but the intimacy offers peace.
