On Land & By Foot

Leisurely Strolls & Comic Revelry in a City Known for Walkability

There are few things more enjoyable than strolling Portland’s cobblestone streets, experiencing the Arts District first-hand, and taking in the historic city that serves as the backdrop of the bustle of modern day life. Walking tours are a popular activity in Portland and with good reason.

On foot is perhaps the best way to take in all the shops, restaurants and pubs, to browse the galleries and patronize the food stands, and to linger by the wharves to see the boats coming and going in the harbor before continuing the excursion.

For visitors, walking tours are also an excellent introduction to the city. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll to Greater Portland landmarks, see the Custom’s House and Longfellow’s Home, and hear about the city’s nightlife and activities. Yet other tours veer off the beaten path, providing a thoroughly entertaining history of "haunted Portland”, and are dedicated to learning about – and eating – lobster.

Self-guided tours are made easy with maps, on- or offline, that provide visitors with highlights of Congress Street, with its 18th century architecture, art deco buildings and harbor views of the Western Promenade’s Victorian neighborhood and of course, the bustling Old Port. There are many self-tour options that can be enjoyed in as little as 15 minutes, or a few hours.
