Portland, ME

A friend recently moved there and raves about it. He says the gay community is small - and incredibly friendly. Lots outdoor types etc. As I approach 50 sounds good to me.

You can't afford it.

I certainly can. I have a ton of equity in my home now. I'd love to downsize.

It is beautiful with a great food scene and so much adventure to be had. Mainers can be a prickly bunch, but are funny too. Go inland and they don't really understand the rest of the country.

Mainers are very crabby.

If you go, next year though, be sure to visit gay artist Winslow Homer’s studio, which has tours through the art museum.

I guess they'd die in winter. Scratchy Summers.

Do it. If you can handle the winter (or can afford to GTFO during winter), then it sounds good to me.

Portland is like Burlington only not as liberal.

Better if you are a lesbean with a Subaru.

Burlington is much better than Portland! OP, you should consider Montpelier (VT).

The problem with Portland, OP, is that the houses are pretty meh

Yeah I looked at some of the houses on Zillow. They do look chunky… And definitely in need of a lot of work

R15 I meant to say they do look a mess… Friends were telling me Burlington is really cool ..and it’s close to Montreal so that’s a plus

^ What would you prefer Montreal or New England?
