We headed to Maine and decided to first stay in Portland so the trip wouldn't be too long. This was probably my favorite place out of all of our stops. We stayed in the Marriott in Downtown Portland and I loved our room and the hotel overall. Portland has the most amazing restaurants and we tried to visit as many as we could. My favorites were Duckfat (rough name but the fries were unreal), Yasaku for sushi and Hot Suppa for breakfast. So many restaurants here focus on bringing the farm to the table, and that resonates with me deeply. I was able to cheat a bit from my normal diet but still feel that I was eating more healthy than I would here in New York.
Trip Advisor was a super helpful tool in our planning and we would definitely use it again for our next trip. They emailed us helpful information before and during the trip which guided many of our choices. Overall it was a great stay and we are looking forward to our next adventure!
