Portland Main Street is celebrating 10 years as a Michigan Main Street community in 2013! Our Organization and Finance Committee has put together a "decade report," marking the changes that downtown Portland has seen over the past decade. To download a copy, please click on the link below.
Located at the confluence of the Looking Glass and Grand Rivers, downtown Portland is a unique destination that offers something for the entire family!
We have four dining establishments, a coffeehouse and bakery, ice cream shop, and two floral/gift shops! And that's just a small sampling of the many great businesses that we have in our downtown.
We also have nearly nine miles of finished river trails running directly through downtown Portland. Bring the bikes, the rollerblades, or just walk our trails and then cap off the day by visiting one of our fine restaurants or ice cream shop.
Located approximately half way between Lansing and Grand Rapids, downtown Portland is your perfect "day trip" getaway! Take a trip down I-96 and exit at Kent Street to find downtown Portland. Experience the laid back, small town charm that Portland has to offer!
Spend a day on the river of your choice! Some cities boast that "a river runs through" their city. Portland is the only Michigan Main Street community that gives you the choice of two!
