1 TAKE A TOUR Food, beer, wine, history, art, architecture, lighthouses, and more—no matter your interest, there is a tour, guided by a local’s knowledge and perspective. Walk, ride, or paddle to experience the flavors of Greater Portland. [p. 22-24] 2 EAT A LOBSTER It seems every pub, restaurant, seaside shack, and food truck has a succulent take on our most famous seafood.
