BoatUS Magazine has included Portland, Maine in its list of ten great boating towns for retirement.

The magazine had this to say about Portland: “Another town with a big-city feel, there’s lots to do on the water and ashore with plenty of cultural offerings, a historic port area, and reasonable home prices. It offers the best of New England boating with lots of protected coves and weekend hideaways.”

Other places on the list include Traverse City, Michigan, Annapolis, Maryland, and Portland, Oregon.
