Just walk around and enjoy the sights, smells and unique little shops. Lots of restaurants, cobblestone streets, ice cream shops and of course, The Holy Donut. You have to go there!

If you have never been here, definitely do take the combination "Trolley" street tour and the Harbor boat tour package. Both are very informative. Take notes on the street tour, because they offer many "pearls" of places to visit and eat laer on your own....More

The Old Port was a great place to walk around, have cocktails and find a great restaurant. There were lots of great places to eat and many restaurants are on the water. Really cute shops and surprisingly easy parking

We were there for a boat trip recently. Pretty views of Casco Bay from the boat. Nice lunch on the dock before sailing, and a great ice cream place just around the corner..
