This leisurely paced walking tour carves a path through the streets of the charming old port. One hundred years ago this was an industrial area home to fish houses, canneries, factories and textile mills. Today this picturesque little town is fragrant with the fresh ocean breeze and scents of coffee houses, bakeries, and award-winning restaurants, tempting passers-by as they wind their way through the scenic narrow streets.
Your friendly and engaging guide takes you to several venues to sample delectable, Maine inspired foods and for a behind-the-scenes look at those who craft these culinary delights. Along the way, learn about the colorful local history unique to Portland, that Bon Appetit magazine crowned as “America’s Foodiest Small Town” for 2009. As you sample the fare at the various stops, your guide and proprietor reveal the history behind their industry, the uniquely Maine products that are used and a little hint or two as to why they are simply award-winning year after year.
