“The Way Life Should Be”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Commercial Street runs along the Portland Harbor. A working Harbor with local daily catch fish markets, shops galore, and restaurants and bars. Portland Maine is of my favorite places in the U.S.

“Nice walking area of Portland.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

There are more than the typical tourist type (souvenier) shops to browse in this mainly shopping district of the old port area. It appears to draw artists and craftsmen from all over.

“Shopping”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great shopping location. More laid back then Portsmouth, NH. Take an afternoon and walk the streets and see musicians on the street!
