There are sixteen wharfs along Commercial Street. They begin at Franklin Street (a block west of the cruise terminal) and stretch for about .75 miles to Park Street. These former working docks – Union and Widgery Wharf date back to the late 18th century – have been transformed into a haven for tourists. Huddled together are eateries, pubs, shops, tour operators, historic vessels, a fish market plus wonderful views of Portland Harbor. You could have a wonderful day without ever leaving the waterfront.
