Mackworth Island

A scenic walking path around the hundred-acre island affords visitors a sweeping view of Casco Bay.

Reviewed By cessnapilot - Cape Elizabeth, Maine

This place drives me batty. I guess because it's so close to Portland, it's wildly popular (so good luck getting a parking space).

The trail is only 1.25 miles. It thus attracts every family with a stroller for miles around.....the "fairy village" doesn't help. There is no peace whatsoever between the local dog-walker, the joggers, etc. There are often van-loads of kids from local schools. Many families with children let them run ahead, out of control, where they literally run into other people who are there for a more peaceful experience.

The park rangers, when they are there, do a poor job of controlling parking. I now most often go there with a handicapped friend, and the handicapped space is almost always occupied.......by cars with no handicapped plate nor placard.

It's a nice little walk and very easy (i.e. very flat), but did someone call it "serene"? Egad.

For the record, in the 1970s I lived in that neighborhood, and went running on Mackworth every day. In the subsequent 40-plus years I have been there literally hundreds of times.

But while I still occasionally go (particularly if the weather isn't good), the hoards of people, and especially the screaming kids, have made it an unpleasant experience.

Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park

Maine state park that offers a scenic walk along Casco Bay.

Reviewed By Janet D

We visited on a cool, sunny fall day when conditions were perfect for walking and enjoying the water views. It was too late in the season to see any ospreys, but the island nesting site was visible from the shore. We encountered a number of other visitors, some of whom were jogging, others walking a dog, and some who were there hoping for great pictures. It's a beautiful area.

I booked this tour for six of us because I knew we would have a Sunday afternoon to kill in a cold Portland in February. Now I dont drink but I would say this was a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting tour. All very friendly too. Well recommended, we may just go back next year.

Eartha, the World's Largest Revolving and Rotating Globe

Reviewed By Haggai L - New York City, New York

We stopped on the way to Bar Harbor. There's nothing to see but the globe - the store is closed - but the globe itself is impressive and interesting to see.

Worth 15 minutes, wouldn't drive especially for it unless you really into these things. On the other hand, great stop if you're going through anyway, with nice and clean bathrooms.

Atlantic Seal Cruises

Reviewed By restaurantdiva - Westford

While in Freeport we called the reservation line and made a reservation for the next day's tour. We arrived at the town wharf and did not see the boat. We stopped in at the Harbor master's office and were told that if there were not 6 passengers, the owner did not go out. He had moved from the area and had not been seen that day. We had left a callback number when we made the reservation but never received a courtesy call back letting us know they would not be operating the tour. We were disappointed and it was a waste of our time. BTW the Harbormaster said the cruises from Portland were superior. It's only a 15 minute drive and well worth it.

Maine Beer Company

Reviewed By Randy Y - Long Island, New York

The brewery offers at least 10 varieties of beer ranging from light to heavy citrus blends to a dark chocolate/coffee variety. The flights are reasonably priced. The Maine Beer Company also has a sandwich tent located outside their front entrance. The only negative is that there is not enough seating areas to accommodate the large crowd of tasters that show up on the weekend.

Reviewed By Owen T - Portland, Maine

This has been my sixth season sailing with Captain Stuart, and while each outing is different, depending on the wind and which part of Casco Bay we explore, they have all been thoroughly enjoyable. This is entirely due to Captain Stuart's professionalism, combined with easy charm and sensitivity to clients' needs and preferences.

Royal River Park

Reviewed By TRichards19 - Portland, Maine

This is the heart of Yarmouth. Say hello when you walk by someone (you are not in the big city!). Amble along the river path. Watch dogs and people play frisby on the lawn. If you are with a child, make sure to head away from the river path up the hill towards the school, where there is a nice playground. If you have teens, you may need to talk them out of jumping into the river off the little bridge (or join them, depending on how hot it is). If you are with a fisherman, beware, they will start longing for their flyrod.

Lucinda's Day Spa

Reviewed By Debra0702lynn - Newport, Maine

Went to Lucinda's for a long-anticipated girls spa day with 7 friends. I had a deep tissue massage. There was no health history required (I asked twice at the desk and then directly asked the therapist who said that they usually do them and I would do one "after".) Tea was offered in the waiting room but there was no offering of robe and slippers or any kind of "green room" for waiting once we were checked in and not enough chairs for all of us and the others who were coming in. We were taken in a timely manner to our services. My therapist was somewhat knowledgeable and could have given an outstanding massage session if she had been "present" in the room. It was obvious that she was dealing with either a cold or allergies, constantly coughing and sniffing. There was no attention to my comfort; I had to ask to have the bolster moved from my knees to under my ankles when we first started. It felt like she was not "in the room" with me. I had shared one problem spot with her where I asked for more attention and, again, no presence about my pain tolerance or lack of, no questioning whether she was addressing the issue, etc. There was no face massage or scalp massage. Disappointing.
