After staying a few days off the coast of Maine on Peak's Island, I traveled back to the mainland to spend some time exploring Portland & Scarborough. Portland rules. It's a small city with a lively nightlife, shopping center, and food scene. You can't go wrong with lobster rolls and sweet potato doughnuts, two delicacies I had several times while visiting. The city revolves around the proximity of the sea and you can find anything and everything sea themed, even re-purposed ship sails into tote bags. Twenty minutes south of Portland I visited Scarborough, where they have an even more quiet lifestyle and killer surf beach. Exploring and enjoying the waves and beautiful craggy coastline kept me busy and entertained for days. Visiting Maine again is definitely on my travel list!
