As you explore the old part of Portland, chances are that you will eventually walk uphill into the newer area of town. Rather than retracing your steps head east and find this lovely waterfront trail. It's hard to imagine that the construction of this trail...More
Although it rained the day we visited, the eastern promenade is an oasis for city dwellers and tourists alike. It's a lovely walk/retreat with Portland's seafaring coast viewed from one side and it's grand mansions where the beautiful people live on the other.
On the positive side this promenade starts from Old Port, so is ideal if you are staying there and need to run. But nothing spectacular. Also, around the water treatment area the smell is unpleasant. I preferred the the park at Fort Williams over this.
We walked here with our dog. Some open-space zones are specifically marked for dogs to be off leash, which is nice as long as the dog is friendly and the people in that area like dogs. It is not fenced in. People do seem to...More
We visited Portland in October, when it was getting colder, and enjoyed a brisk walk along this paved path that winds along the coastline in eastern Portland. We walked from Congress St. down to the Eastern Promenade path each morning, then walked along the paved...More

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 you like craft beers, there are 3 breweries within walking distance -- Rising Tide, Bunker, and Shipyard - and lots of good pubs and restaurants in and outside of the Old Port area.
If you want to want to tour the lighthouses and not do it on a tour bus, Enterprise is probably the best bet. Their intown site is on the corner of Forest Avenue and Marginal Way and they will pick you up and take you back. It is walkable from the pier but will take about an hour.
We've seen an attractive looking two bedroom apartment through Homeaway on the Eastern Promenade. We're interested in this for the first week in June and it does show availability. Any particular advice about this location? For example, will street traffic be bothersome? The two reviews are very positive, but I've learned to take these with several grains of salt. Thanks in advance for any advice!

I think the Eastern Prom is a great location. Wonderful views of Casco Bay. Street traffic is usually very light. Probably about a 20 minute walk to the Old Port section of Portland for dining/shopping. Just make sure it's actually on the Eastern Promenade and not just "in the area" one street back or something, because you'll then be in a regular residential neighborhood without the views. There are sometimes festivals on the Promenade ie. 4th of July, or Concerts so you may want to check...More
Vacation Rental Question (15 Replies)
We're planning on spending June and July in Portland. We came across a reasonably priced 1 bedroom condo at 129 Morning St. One block up from the Eastern Promenade. A second floor unit but no view. We're renting through PortlandMaineRentals.com a division of C&T Property Management at 200 High St. You always feel a little uncertain doing these things online. I was wondering if anyone new the location or the property management company first hand. Thanks

Have you Google mapped it and "walked" the neighborhood? View-wise, it looks nice. It's near the Good Theater and the Front Porch restaurant. I do not know this company, but it looks like you can schedule a visit, so a scam would seem unlikely. They also list reputable local companies on their list of partners - those who renovate and prepare their properties. Hopefully someone who knows this company will respond to your post.
Place to stay near Eastern Promenade (4 Replies)
We're going to be in Portland on August 4th to attend a concert being held at the Eastern Promenade. We would like some suggestions for places to stay overnight. We'd love a place within walking distance but if there isn't anything close to the Eastern Promenade, do you have any suggestions on the best way to get to and from the Eastern Promenade to our hotel? Thanks!!!!!

Eastern Promenade is not far from the Downtown Waterfront district. The closest I can think of is Residence Inn(~0.5 miles). There is also a Hilton Garden, Hampton Inn, Portland Regency etc - all within a mile of the Eastern Promenade.
