Portland, Maine: Best. City. Ever.
My hometown of Portland, Maine, has been named by Outside Magazine as the Best Adventure Town in the East.

Portland is a great little city. The city proper only has 62,875 citizens (there are 188,080 if you count the surrounding neighborhoods and small towns), but because it's situated on a peninsula, it feels like a real city. The arts scene is an active one anchored by schools like the Salt Institute
and the Maine College of Art
(check out the local doc site Sunday Best). Portland has a plethora of great restaurants, all of which you can walk to from anywhere on the peninsula (if you don't mind a 20-minute walk for some — Bonobos is that far from my house and is well worth it).
In short, Portland, Maine, is a rad place to live. You should move here.
