Lighthouse was enveloped in scaffolding so it wasn't camera worthy.
Lighthouse was enveloped in scaffolding so it wasn't camera worthy. We were given excellent places as to where to eat. We found Canadian cities to be more interesting.

We booked a trolley tour direct online thru Portland Discovery Tours. Our driver was humorous and informative making the tour enjoyable. I'd recommend the trolley tour for sure (book it online so you're guaranteed a ticket).and if it's a nice day, get there early to book the harbor/bay cruise tour. We split a lobster roll, fries and a beer at the Portland Lobster Co. It's on the main street with plenty of tables so it's easy to find a seat. There's also entertainment at various times. I'd recommend it for Portland first timers. Read Less

This is a delightful city. I chose the Portland Highlights and Lighthouse excursion. Interesting city tour via bus with narration both about the city’s history and current status. There is a brief stop at Portland Head Lighthouse, which was the most enjoyable part of the tour. There is time to look around the lighthouse and beach area, take pictures, and pop in the gift shop. There is not enough time to walk the trails. The tour has an early start, so I did sufficient time to browse the Old Port area, which is easily navigated on your own. Plenty of local vendors were available on Commercial Street with lots of local artisan products. Read Less
