Alfred Reviews

1 review
Alfred is a small, quiet town within 30 minutes of Portland, ME and Portsmouth, NH. The town, itself, does not have a lot of restaraunts, but there are restaraunts, shopping and night life close by in the nearby cities of Sanford, Biddeford, Saco. Alfred is also close to the beach life of Wells, Kennebunk and Old Orchard Beach and close to Fun Town Splash Town USA in Saco.
