Rosemont Reviews

Its clean, quiet family neighborhood, with plenty of green spaces, schools and shops on the main road. It's definitely one of the more charming neighborhoods of the city, the state and even New England. The density and volume of traffic are low compared to proximity to downtown, and Victorian-era homes line the streets.

Portland is a huge tourist attraction. The Old Port features brick buildings and cobblestone streets; there are hundreds of little shops and restaurants and ice cream parlors. DiMillo's Floating Restaurant is a go-to for tourists looking for some local seafood. There are some small beaches, lots of green areas, and enough site seeing to last you at least a full day, depending on how quickly you move. There's the Longfellow House and Victoria Mansion that are fun historical sites. There's the Portland Museum of Art for the art-lovers and a Children's Museum right next-door. Wandering into the shops on the streets could bring you anywhere: tea shops like Dobra and clothing and art shops like Mexicali Blues. The Baxter Boulevard is a great place to walk or bike, and every Sunday over the summer, half is closed off for pedestrians to bike or play in the street and feel the ocean breeze. The Old Port Fest is probably the biggest event all summer, and it usually goes 2 days; there's music and food and art, and everyone comes out for a good time with friends.
Housing varies greatly. There are million dollar homes, average homes, and condominiums all within 15 feet of each other. North Deering has the most uniform looking homes. Sagamore Village is rundown, and new immigrants tend to move there. Deering is for the average Joe. Downtown has lots of apartments. The East and West End are the biggest homes and the ones with the best views. The West End is a tad sketchy at night, as is Deering, Downtown, and Sagamore Village, but that's common in cities.
