Beautiful, long walk

Beautiful! There is a long walk alongside the ocean. We walked here more than one day and climbed along the rocks a bit.

This is a great place to just hang out, smell the sea breeze and relax. Take a lunch or a bottle of wine.

Had an afternoon alone so drove down to Portland. Staying 20 miles north, just a matter of driving down I295. Easy parking (and free) overlooking the bay. Exit the interstate and go down to end and turn left. You'll find the park. Got on bicycle and rode down and around PORTLAND. The downtown area is easily found by just ridding... More

The Eastern prom is not to be missed. You can drive, walk the sidewalk, walk the trails, or bike the trail. As you travel from downtown up to the top of the Eastern Prom, you have expansive views of Casco Bay. At the top, you overlook the Back Bay and, on a clear day, might see Mt. Washington.

My sister and I walked this on an early morning. There is the magnificent view of the water to keep you interested. It is a favorite for bikers, runners and walkers. A great way to get in those steps on your pedometer!

We drove by the promenade when we went to visit Portland on an overcast, slightly chilly day in July. We saw many ppl walking & jogging but the view was not enticing enough for us to walk there. The parking was questionable, too.

Drive to Fort Allen Park on the Eastern Promenade and park and walk (or just walk from the harbor). Great views of the water. So peaceful, a nice break from the hustle of crowds in the city proper.

About a 2 mile walk along this promenade that's very scenic. It's a straight path with no hills (for those who cannot do hilly walks, this is perfect). There are benches along the way to catch views of the Ocean, a spot for swimming, art sculptures, shell collecting and the train ride.
