This is a nice tour of Portland’s Old Port main downtown area. Old Port is one of the most successful revitalized warehouse districts in the country. Seamlessly connected to the waterfront, Old Port is both a working waterfront and a local shopping, dining, residential, and entertainment district. Taking a walk at the water’s edge along Commercial Street provides a window into the working waterfront. Just steps from the water, you can walk down the cobblestone streets and experience the charm of this district. Along the way you’ll pass multiple wharfs, where short loops will take you out to the water’s edge. After you take a right on High St, you’ll pass Portland’s Museum of Art. A right onto Congress St, will bring you past Lincoln Park. From there you’ll take a right onto Franklin St to loop back towards the ferry terminal.
Run can be extended with the Eastern Promenade, along Thames St., or combined with Congress St.
