We Love Living in Portland, TX!

Portland, Texas is a wonderful place to live. I have been living in Portland since 1983 when I got married. I am fortunate to live in one of the best areas in Portland, but really there are no "bad" areas! The housing market is in a little bit of a slump right now but that changes with the tide. We have really great schools here, enough jobs to go around, beautiful natural scenery even in the more populated areas, nice homes, and great neighbors! The weather here is awesome and there are some really fun things to do since we're only a short drive away from Corpus Christi.

I enjoy visiting Bubbles N Brushes, an art studio that offers wine-tasting as you create! We also have the USS Lexington Museum, filled with interesting artifacts and historical objects, and the Dolphin Connection, where there is a museum devoted to learning all about these beautiful creatures as well as a gift shop. Living here is a wonderful experience.
