What Bert Has To Say About Portland-South Portland Metro Area

Portland is Maine’s largest city and cultural center. It is a New England classic, with shipping, commercial fishing, and a quaint historic core known as the Old Port. After suffering an extensive urban decline in the 1970s, locals realized what they had and restored much of the downtown core commercially and aesthetically. The result is an excellent example for other cities to follow. Today the Old Port area is an active commercial and entertainment district, with excellent seafood restaurants. The rest of the downtown area is clean, attractive and functional, and the entire city has a slow pace and small-town, New England feel.
