The best things to bring home from Portland, Maine, are either the food or the art. Visit the Public Market House to pick up a sampling of local cheese, bread and beer to bring back. This spot is great for gifts — the fresh variety found only in Maine will appeal to anyone who can’t make the trip themselves. Another perfect gift: works of art prepared by local and budding artistes. Allow time to peruse the galleries in Old Port or in the Arts District for one-of-a-kind treasures to take home. You’ll find artists that work in a range of mediums and something for almost everyone you know.
