A Winter Day in Portland Maine

Updated: Mar 3, 2019

Fried clams at DiMillos

We love Portland year round. Winter in Portland is a bit less crowded than summer, but not that much less crowded. It's a popular place.

As self-employed people we like to take Fridays off as much as we can and go to lunch. Those Fridays include jaunts to Portland are every six weeks or so. When we bring the dogs along for the ride we like to make it easy, and that means DiMillos. Some might think it is a tourist only destination, but we can say that it's not just for tourists.

The bar is a long galley style layout and we have dined at the bar many, many times. The bartenders chat with customers that are clearly local regulars. The view is beautiful, the food is good, and the free parking is a huge perk.

Our day in Portland's Old Port usually includes lunch, a trip to Harbor Fish Market, then a cocktail and snack. We walk doggies a few times too. It makes for a great day of good food and fresh salty air.

Check out our very first Vlog about our day in Portland.
