Portland

image

Our recent adventure led us up I-95 to the cutest little town by the sea – Portland, Maine. My “Maine” objective was to taste the famous Lobster rolls, which, by the way, were on point. It is also a vibrant and scenic city that I have been eager to cross off my domestic adventure list this summer.

Portland is only a 2 hour drive north from Boston if you stick to the interstate, although we opted for the slower but charming coastal route through Hampton Beach and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Whatever route you prefer, make sure to experience this colorful city sitting at the mouth of the Fore River as it empties into Casco bay. Portland is the essence of New England with an unexpected variety of culture, food, shops and trendy cafes.

We started our trip off by having lunch at 3 Buoys

Tried so hard to get a picture of this mural but there were trucks parked in front of it! If you know where MECA is downtown, walk around there and you will find this awesome mural!

Before heading home we stopped by Cape Elizabeth to check out the lighthouse. It was so beautiful.
