Visit Portland Maine Restaurants & Hotspots
Cristina’s Bed & Breakfast to Portland, ME Hotspots
Cristina’s in Camp Ellis Beach is only 20 minutes, a short ride north up Interstate 95 to Route 295, from Portland’s Old Port. Portland has two commodities that bring charm to the city’s vast yet quaint harbor: more restaurants per capita than any city in the United States and a unique vibe that dates back to Portland Harbor’s days as a main, East Coast shipping destination rivaling both Boston and New York City.
During the summer months, visitors can sit inside or out at J’s Oyster Bar or DeMillo’s Floating Restaurant and mingle with the local crowd during Happy Hour. Dining at the Fore Street Restaurant, a five star experience, or The Salt Exchange on Commercial Street will entrance the pallet while giving the diner a taste of all things Maine. Whether meat or seafood, vegetables or cheese, both restaurants provide a cuisine of produce and products native to Maine. Furthermore, the panoramic views of the working harbor integrated with the private boats and yachts generate a feeling of belonging and comfort that most tourist destinations only dream they had.
Portland’s Old Port also has a plethora of shops that feature Maine Made Products. Once parked, the entire Old Port is a walkable venture into history.
Still, we recommend staying local at our wonderful romantic Maine bed and breakfast. Welcome to Camp Ellis Beach. Welcome to Cristina’s your gateway to Maine.
