America's Coolest Small Towns

The Top Ten List by Jetsetter placed Portland Maine as #5

If your geographic preferences fall somewhere between major metropolis and Iowan farm town, consider escaping to the mid-sized cities of urban America. From a Lake Michigan beach town with killer farm-to-table fare, to an artistic enclave in Northern California, to a burgeoning beer capital in the heart of Dixie, contributor Emily Saladino charts a course to the coolest places to visit this summer.

#5 Portland, Maine

Goat’s milk Brie for everyone! The confluence of affordable real estate, creative energy and rich natural resources give southern Maine’s unofficial capital a swinging food scene. Slurp bivalves with Tabasco- or kimchi-infused ice at Eventide oyster bar, sip microbrews with endearingly earnest beer geeks at Novare Res Bier Café, indulge in Japanese-accented brunch at Miyake, and get down at Hunt & Alpine Club, a vaguely Nordic bar and gastropub opened by a Clyde Common alum.
