In addition to Portland, you may want to consider some other urban areas in Maine that fit the criteria of walkability and shopability. For example, Iâ€™ve been showing my mom condos in Brunswick. This town offers wide streets with a variety of stores and restaurants, trails for safe walking, arts and entertainment, and an Amtrak train stop. Saco also boasts of these amenities with the added plus of being nearer to the beach. Ogunquit and Kennebunk I would highly recommend as vibrant quaint summer communities offering shops, dining, theater and views, a special setting for a retired coupleâ€™s dream home. It would be my pleasure to assist you with your real estate needs. You may reach me at 207-615-6760.
