Portland, Maine was definitely not putting her best foot forward when we visited on a gray, rainy day in the fall.

We made our way through town to Commercial Street and the Old Port Wine and Cigar Shop, where we were to meet our tour group for one of the charming tours provided by Maine Foodie Tours. They offer several different foodie tours but we chose to participate in the Culinary Walking Tour because we thought it would offer a great introduction to this foodie city. The walking tour winds through the streets of Old Port and allow you to sample a variety of delectable, Maine-inspired foods and get a behind-the-scenes at those artists who create these culinary delights.
