The colorful Portland, Maine, waterfront, has come a long way with proper commercial and residential development.  Once downtrodden, the Portland waterfront story is much different now with a growing restaurant and shopping scene -- a natural progression, given its geographical nexus to Portland's travel jewel, the Port Exchange.  With several blocks full of seemingly endless dining and shopping options, cobblestone streets and restored 19th century brick buildings, the Port Exchange district combines with other historic, brick-dominated, tree-lined neighborhoods to offer one of New England's greatest city travel destinations. While Portland is no doubt a city, the feeling, however, is ultimately small-town with its casual, generally friendly,  quiet yet dynamic coastal personality.
