About Us

There’s a reason people are attracted to Portland. Our city is home to a wealth of restaurants, bars, hotels, inns, boutiques, shops, specialty markets, museums, historic homes, walking trails, outdoor activities, and scenic views. All within walking distance of each other.

Portland is a globally recognized dining destination, with local restaurants receiving accolades heaped on top of awards. It’s at the forefront of the farm-to-table movement, and continues to attract top-notch chefs from around the world. Visitors who come for the food stay for the culture. Museums, theaters, and beautifully designed bars can all be found a short stroll from any hotel on the peninsula.

If we sound proud, that’s because we are. Portland is our city. It’s where we’ve made our homes, where we live, work, and play. We love being part of the Portland community. There are few cities in the world that feel so open, so welcoming, so ready to reach out and give you a hand (or hand you a beer). Life here is good, and we want to shout it from the rooftops.

The mission of Old Port magazine is to cover the heart and soul of our city. We know this city and want to share our knowledge with visitors and residents. In Old Port, we’ll cover everything from late night dining to Sunday morning yoga. We’ll feature shopping secrets from stylish Mainers, and cocktail wisdom from the city’s finest bartenders. We’ll show you new running routes and lovely old buildings. From bike trails and real estate, to music venues, art galleries, and unique shops—we’ll have it all. If it’s on the peninsula, it’s in our pages.
