Portland is full of businesses, it’s like a mini NYC with all the little shops and eateries. It’s quite neat as well with the brick road. Blue lobster has all sorts of souvenirs for all types, post cards, magnets shirts mugs pins etc.

I really liked this souvenir shop. It had all the regular souvenir staples for people like me, who like to get a little memento from my travels. It also had some really unique and different items as well. The prices were very reasonable too.
