Portland, Maine is a wonderful city. It is extremely versatile and offers a great amount of activities for people of all ages. I love how close and convenient everything in the city is. One of the only complaints I have is that there is limited free parking in the city, you have to pay for plastic bags at all businesses, and it is extremely difficult to find housing.

The police are great in Portland. Bad things sometimes do happen when people feel too safe. The police are used to working on big issues and are friendly but help when needed. Police in other towns are worse and rude. Small crime isn't a big issue.
Home-like and calm atmosphere crossed with businesses and activity. Very local.
