What a Move to Portland Has to Offer
The southeastern coastal city is situated on a peninsula that borders Casco Bay, the Gulf of Maine and the Atlantic Ocean. U.S. Highways 1, 202 and Interstate 95 travel through the city, which features air, land and sea public transportation services.
Census estimates obtained in 2013 indicated that the population was 66,318 at that time. Of the 30,725 households that make their permanent home in Portland, 21 percent have minor children. Portland residents are proud to be part of a community that is home to the largest school system in the state. The community has four school districts that encompass numerous elementary and middle schools. There are also seven public and private high schools. In terms of higher education, the town is home to the Maine College of Art, the University Of Maine School Of Law, the University of New England and the University of Southern Maine.
Cultural places of interest include the Wadsworth-Longfellow House, where the famous American poet spent his childhood. Constructed before the Civil War, the Victoria Mansion also welcomes visitors to tour the National Historic Landmark. The Portland Head Lighthouse was commissioned in 1791 by George Washington and became the first coastal beacon in the country. Stargazers will enjoy the weekend shows featured at the Southworth Planetarium in the science building at the University of South Maine.
Outdoor activities include walking along the Eastern Promenade Trail along Casco Bay or the perimeter trail found on Mackworth Island.
