We arrived Friday afternoon, checked into our hotel, and heading out for our first activity of the trip. Luckily, our hotel had a complimentary shuttle so they took us where we need to go. We did the Maine baycyle which was BYOB and it was a ton of fun. We got to plug in our own music and it was our party and a bachelor party which made it even more fun. We then went to RiRas for a drink since it was right next to where we got the baycycle from. After having a drink, we had the shuttle pick us up and bring us back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We made a reservation at Duckfat for dinner but could only get a 930 reservation so we went for drinks at Sebago Brewing Company before dinner which was right around the corner. At Duckfat, we split poutine with truffle ketchup which was out of this world. Seemed like everything on the menu was delicious, especially the milkshakes. On Saturday, we woke up quite early so we could get to Holy Donut for donuts and coffee before it got really busy. After devouring our donuts, we walked the black cliff walk. We walked to the trail so it was about a 4.5 mile walk altogether. We then all went back to freshen up and headed to Allagash Brewery around 2. There are a bunch of other breweries within walking distance with food trucks so it’s a great place to spend a summer afternoon. We hit up all the breweries and the one distillery. The best food truck was most definitely the Korean taco truck; the chicken tacos to be more specific. We stayed there until 5 and headed back to get ready for our night out. Before heading to our 9 pm dinner reservation, we had a drink at the bar at the top of our hotel called top of the east. Dinner was then at Fore Street, a pricey yet semi worth it restaurant. If you like sushi, Fuji is also a great option. After dinner, we walked around the corner and ended up at riras for the rest of the night. They had a live band and was all around a good time. Sunday was recovery day like most bachelorette weekends. We packed up and brought everything to our cars before brunch. We had brunch at Hot Suppa. They don’t take reservations but everything was fantastic so worth the wait. We all then headed our separate hungover ways. Successful weekend for sure.
Special thanks to Gabbie for sending me tips on where to go and where to eat.
We stayed at The Westin Portland Harbor View. They had salsa night going on next to our hotel one night which was fun to see and dance. Old Port was about a 20 minute walk way from us.
