In this week’s episode w,e are going to talk about the historic working waterfront in Portland Maine. When we talk about the waterfront in Portland Maine, we are referring to the area down at the bottom of Commercial street and all the wharves that are home to some amazing businesses. If you are in the area make sure to check out the Casco Bay Lines. You can take the mail run and cruise around all the islands in Casco Bay, stop into Becky’s Diner for a meal, or take a diving class at Aquadiving Academy. Also located on the waterfront is the U.S. Coast Guard, so if you are walking by at the right time you may see a cool ship! The fishing industry is a major part of Maine’s economy. Down at the waterfront, you can stop at the harbor fish market, and check out the amazing fishermen who are the backbone of Maine. Situated down on the waterfront are some fantastic restaurants including Jay’s Oyster House, and the famous floating restaurant Dimillo’s is docked off the wharves. The Gulf of Maine Research Institute which works to protect Maines’s ecosystems is also located at the waterfront! If you want to charter a boat, there are a bunch of options in the area. Right next to the Portland Oceangateway is the Maine State Pier where you can check out the view or even a concert! Make sure to check out the Walk the Working Waterfront event next year and remember if you Make Maine Your Home, you don’t have to do it alone!
