If, by chance, you have decided to move to Portland, Maine, here is some basic info about Portland that you might find helpful.
About Portland, Maine
Portland is the most populous city in the state of Maine, with a population of around 66,000 as of 2016. This makes it the fourth least populous city in the United States to be the most populous in its state. The city seal shows a phoenix rising from ashes, which is homage to Portland’s recoveries from four very devastating fires.
Portland has a humid continental climate, which means you can expect rather cold, snowy winters, and warm, occasionally hot, summers. The monthly daily average temperature ranges from 22.3 °F (−5.4 °C) in January to 69.1 °F (20.6 °C) in July.
Portland has become Maine’s economic capital because the city has Maine’s largest port, the largest population, and is very close to Boston (105 miles to the south).
Over the years, the local economy has shifted from fishing, manufacturing, and agriculture towards a more service-based economy. Most national financial services organizations such as Bank of America and Key Bank base their Maine operations in Portland.
