Easy walk from Hampton Inn--beautiful vistas of Casco Bay and vintage, well-kept merchant sea captain homes overlooking the bay. Walking trails take you down to the water and there's also a nice looking park for kids to play.

Took our ten month old out for a stroll here today and it was beautiful! Gorgeous views of the water and not terribly busy, even on a 70 degree Saturday afternoon. We walked along the higher path, down to East End Beach, and then along the trolley tracks. Wonderful little stroll!

If your children need a place to let off some steam, the playground on Eastern Promenade is a fantastic choice. Large playground with a ballfield and an AMAZING view of the harbor. We sat and watched the boats and drank our coffee while the little one ran around and made friends. Surprisingly, we only met other tourists, no locals. Note... More

A nice walk along the ocean/beach and the outskirts of Portland with stunning views of the harbor. Great benches/grassy knolls to sit down and enjoy lunch.

Spent a few hours on the promenade one day last week. Very nice views, great walking/biking paths. A great way to get a real perspective of the daily comings & goings on Casco Bay.

Really worth walking around and enjoying the view on a sunny day. You walk up the hill and then get a complete view of the harbor side as well as a breathtaking view from the east side.

Decent bike trail, but nothing to rave about. The waste water treatment plant at the end puts a damper on the experience. Certainly it's nice to have a bike trail in a city, but if you're looking for the beautiful Maine coastline, which certainly exists in plenty of places, this isn't it - it's really just a nice-ish bike trail...

This is the kind of thing you can do in 5 minutes or 5 hours. It's a great view of Casco Bay. You can walk, run, or bike the trail that runs along the water. Or you can just sit in the grass and enjoy the view.
