Life in Eastport

Eastport invites you to come for a visit and stay for a lifetime

Consider making the Eastport area your home. It is a welcoming community where you’ll find a healthy mix of families who have been here for generations, seasonal residents and a growing number of people "from away" who have discovered this gem of a town to call home.   Incorporated as a town in 1798 and as a city in 1893, Eastport is the least populated city in Maine with a population of 1,288 (2020 census).

The Port of Eastport, the working waterfront, service businesses, shop owners, and a vibrant tourism and hospitality sector all create a fabric of life with a small-town, community-driven approach every Eastporter values and embraces. The Eastport area is also a community of artists, creatives, and performers working together to share their talents with all who live here and all who visit.

All ages thrive here.  Retirees and seniors make up a large portion of the population, alongside young families coming to make Eastport their home, with telecommuting possible using Eastport's reliable remote connectivity.  

 

The area schools provide a supportive environment for learning and develop well-rounded students with programs like award-winning music departments and competitive sports teams.

 

We invite you to come live in this breathtakingly beautiful coastal community for an unparalleled work/life balance.  Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime!
