Yes. Life is good here.

Greater Portland’s safe environment, beautiful landscapes, and vibrant arts and food culture combine to create a treasured quality of life for residents and visitors alike. Portland consistently makes top-ten lists of best places to vacation, and is also appearing on “best of” lists for families, outdoor lifestyle, and business startups, even being named one of the “Happiest Places to Retire” (2019) by Kiplinger.

An old seaport city on a fresh new trajectory fueled by the creative economy, Greater Portland has been attracting young entrepreneurs who find the progressive region large enough to be interesting, yet small enough to develop a supportive community.
