Eastern Promenade is one of those gems on the edge of the city. There are places to walk/exercise, tranquil spots to look at the water, and a great place to view seasonal fireworks.

This is a nice stroll along the waterfront. There's the little polar express train that runs along side the promenade.

It is one of the most beautiful places my husband and I have ever been. We came in the fall and the colors are so bright and bold. Were from california and this was our first stop In Maine. The trail is perfect for any one and follows along the water. Dont miss it.

We were on a cruise ship and able to walk off the ship and start the trail. Beautiful scenery all along the way. Beautiful waterways as well to see. The only strange part was it ended at an industrial area, and then to get to yet old town area which is also amazing, you walked through the down town area,... More
