This quiet Yankee village, somewhat removed from the rest of the world by a sharp curve in the Connecticut River, is an excellent place to live. Rooted by its small town heritage, Portland maintains its nineteenth century appeal, while offering quality, up-to-date services.
Portland offers more than the nostalgic charm of a New England village. It offers the convenience of Central Connecticut, midway between Boston and New York. A short ride gives you access to shopping malls, cultural programs sponsored by top-grade universities, airports, a variety of restaurant cuisine, beaches, ski-slopes, sports arenas, the capital city of Hartford. If theater is what you enjoy, we are not far from Hartford Stage, Bushnell, Hartford Civic Center, Shubert, Goodspeed and Oakdale.
