Hi IF you want local arts- and you can stay in town til Thurs- you must go to the 45th Annual Cumberland Arts & Crafts Show- at the Cumberland Fairgrounds ( 20 min from Portland (Maine)) - THE MOST amazing event- you will return year after year- for a cozy. Local place to get the best lobster meal- steamers-clam chowder- etc- - about 15 min south of Portland- must be nice weather- seating only outside on picnic tables on their dock overlooking marshes- or take home- Bayley's Lobster Pound- take route 1- south- turn left at signs to Old Orchard Beach (Maine)- at end- there is a T - go left to you almost drive into their parking lot- don't bother with Clambake Restaurant- worth the trip - closes at 8pm- go for lunch-. Other resto in Portland- Duckfat- for a sandwich- French fries cooked in duck fat and drinks- not to 

Be missed- , Fore Street Restaurant- restaurant- 5 stars - chefs eat here. And a very special restaurant- Grace- built in a church- will wow you- good luck
