Here in Portland, Maine we all know why we love living here.
Portland is a great metropolitan area with great access to the arts, entertainment, outdoor living and even in the recent economic downturn the Portland area has remained generally stable as far as economic opportunities. The Greater Portland metropolitan area is the center for jobs and commuting from other areas is relatively easy compared to other larger cities.
Recently I was showing houses and condos to visitors from Washington D.C. and they could not believe how easy it was to get around even at "rush hour". From Portland's Old Port area you can be to great beaches in 15 minutes, to ski areas in an hour, to lakes and waterways in under an hour and as far as retaurants and entertainment. Pretty much anything you want within walking distance.
Forbes magazine has now named Portland America's Most Livable city
