The Portland, Maine neighborhood of East Bayside-India Street is a mixed residential and commercial region located northeast along the Portland Peninsula. This neighborhood has businesses such as shops, restaurants, and other services concentrated on the north and south borders along the water. Residents can easily reach shops and eateries on foot. The area is highly walkable with plenty of destinations in the area including museums, marinas, and shopping areas. 

Portland's climate is described as continental. Area residents that walk their dogs regularly will find that winters are cold and snowy with occasional high winds with snow and moisture from the coast, making winters particularly hostile. Dry, warm winter coats and footwear are required when traveling on foot during this season. Summers are beautiful with warm temperatures and pleasant for walking your dog. Spring can be rainy so take an umbrella for yourself and if your dog doesn't like getting wet, a rain slicker for your pooch too.

Some areas of East Bayside are hilly, although inclines are gradual and usually not difficult to climb on foot. The area has some new developments like apartments and townhouses but many of the neighborhood's single-family homes and apartments are older with historic architecture. 

Back Cove is located on the north border and Portland Harbor on the south. The waterfront is a predominant feature of the terrain with piers and marinas harboring small and large watercraft. 


A freeway along the north side of the community between residential areas and the waterfront hampers pedestrian travel in the area and limits access to the cove. There are many commercial corridors and areas in the neighborhood and traffic in the area is a factor when walking down busy streets, parking lots, and crossing at intersections. Keep your dog leashed when traversing the neighborhood and watch for vehicles entering and leaving businesses and near thoroughfares.
