I went here with my two children after picking up one of them from the airport. We had a nice hour walk. The view is beautiful from up top, and you can take stairs down to walk by the ocean. This is a great place...More

Great place for a leisure stroll with amazing views of the bay and surrounding islands. Well worth the climb from the port area!

Beautiful place for a walk. Fantastic views of the water. Our family felt this was truly a Maine experience.

The best place in Portland to live, to visit, to walk, run, swim, bike, eat out, shop, meet new friends, and get to the Prom early for sunrise and stick around to watch the cruise ships, freighters and ferries . . .

If you visit Portland, this is a super place to visit. Easy, free parking in lots or on the street. The views out over the water are amazing. The homes are superb beauty unto themselves.

I walked the length of the promenade from downtown all the way around the bend. Really pleasant, great views of the harbor and islands--would be a nice place to bicycle.

We were in Portland on July 4th this year and heard we should go to the Eastern Prom for fireworks on the harbor. They were extremely impressive and went on for over 30 minutes. The finale was one of the largest I’ve seen.

You don't want a car if you do not leave Portland. As noted above, everything is walkable and parking is a premium. And if you like to walk, there is an excellent route of interconnected trails that have great views. If... More
