Living in Portage, IN

Portage Township was created in 1836 in an area called the Twenty Mile Prairie, which noted its distance from nearby Michigan City. Portage's first residents supplied livestock, milk, produce and sand to buyers in Chicago, allowing the city to maintain its rural lifestyle for nearly half a century despite the increased use of technology in surrounding cities. New residents fled the crime and pollution of Chicago for the quieter lifestyle in a city that combines "Country Style Living with City Advantages." Today, Portage has many bicycle and hiking trails that allow residents to take advantage of life on Lake Michigan. People here believe in their town and work hard to maintain a high quality of life. Portage embodies the relaxed lifestyle found in most Northwestern Indiana cities, and with Chicago less than an hour away, families are not far from the best entertainment and amenities in the Midwest.

Portage Attractions and Special Events

The Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk is one of the city's finest attractions. The 57-acre property is right on the banks of Lake Michigan and features an enclosed pavilion that features an environmental design, educational classroom, accessible loop trail and fishing pier. The Countryside Park and Alton Goin Museum is also here, which houses many cultural and historical artifacts from northwest Indiana. Portage hosts the annual Harvest Festival, a juried art show featuring the works of local artists. Attendees can also enjoy live music and wine, cheese and chocolate tastings from acclaimed local vendors. Other local favorite events include the Salmon Slam Fishing Tournament, Cruise-In Car Event and Freaky Fun Zombie Run.
