If you love donuts, then you need to head to Portland, Maine. In our humble opinion, the best donut lives here at a place called "The Holy Donut". These donuts are made out of potatoes, and are the best we have ever had. Portland also has lighthouses and lighthouse tours if that is your thing. Downtown Portland has a nice atmosphere and is a little different in that the sidewalks and some of the roads are all made of pavers or bricks. You can walk to everything in downtown Portland, but be careful as some of these pavers are uneven and create a potential trip hazard. Parking your class B motorhome in downtown Portland shouldn't be an issue, however, we would not recommend trying to park a class A motorhome downtown Portland. Overall, this is a very nice city and is about 3 hrs south of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. If you plan to go to Bar Harbor you need to add Portland as a stop, and don't forget to try the "Holy Donut", and remember that the store closes at 5pm, so plan accordingly. If you are looking to overnight near Portland, there is a Cabella's at exit 32 that has water and a dump station. Also, there are many restaurants within walking distance of the Cabella's Parking lot, including the Portland Pie Company, which had excellent pizza.
