Quiet suburb of Portland. Great school system, nice people. Would like to see more businesses so that we don’t have to leave town so much to run errands. Would like to see more of a downtown where people could interact more.

Small town Maine at its best. Terrific place to raise a family and te schools are top-notch (North Yarmouth children attend school in Cumberland). North Yarmouth would be considered a bedroom community of Portland.
Living in a small town has a lot of benefits. You grow up knowing whats right and wrong at a very young age. You know you can trust your neighbors, and they can trust you. Your town is resilient to whatever comes it's way, because being in a small town you all stick together. If I could do it all over again, I would pick to live in a small town, for all the reasons I've listed. I loved growing up with the stars at night, and the silence when it came time to sleep. I'm grateful everyday for the peace I grew up it. My small town made me who I am today.
