Life in Portland

Called the “Jewel by the Sea” by its celebrated native, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Portland combines vibrant city life with natural beauty and abundant recreation opportunities. Located on the shores of Casco Bay - with easy access to beautiful beaches, lakes, and mountains - Portland offers an ideal lifestyle

Residents enjoy world-class restaurants, breweries and shopping as well as excellent school systems and cultural institutions. The nationally-acclaimed Portland Symphony Orchestra performs in the beautiful Merrill Auditorium. And the impressive Portland Museum of Art is home to works by Picasso, Whistler, Wyeth, and Chagall.

The Cross Insurance Arena presents concerts, ice shows, circuses, and semi-pro hockey and local music venues such as the historic State Theatre offer something for everyone. Sports fans crowd Hadlock Field on summer nights to cheer on minor league baseball team the Portland Sea Dogs.

And I Quote...

“In the last decade, Portland has undergone a controlled fermentation for culinary ideas — combining young chefs in a hard climate with few rules, no European tradition to answer to, and relatively low economic pressure — and has become one of the best places to eat in the Northeast.” - The New York Times

Life is Good

Yes. Life is Good Here. See why!
