Portland’s West End stands apart from the other neighborhoods that make up its Peninsula. Whether it’s the turn-of-the-century Victorian mansions or the scenic Western Promenade with views extending all the way to New Hampshire’s White Mountains, it embodies more of an established and refined feel. Tree lined streets and quaint neighborhood eateries further bolster the neighborhood’s desirability.
To gain a greater sense for the area and in particular for its architecture, try Greater Portland Landmark’s self-guided urban stroll, which references some of the neighborhood’s more historically significant homes. An overview can be found here. Enjoy!
