Portage, Indiana Real Estate & Homes for Sale

The deep-water port, amiable atmosphere, strong local economy and entertainment and recreation venues provide a well-rounded lifestyle for Portages 37,000 residents. The City of Portage, Indiana, is located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan in western Porter County, 40 miles east of Chicago and 150 miles north of Indianapolis. Residents have convenient access to the greater Chicago metro and communities throughout the state, via major roadways and an extensive public transportation network. Individuals and businesses appreciate the proximity of Interstates 80, 94 and 65, several state routes, plus commuter lines, buses, commercial rail lines and an international port.

The local economy is supported by two major steel companies, Mittal and National Steel. Most of the workforce is employed in production or transportation positions, sales or office work, or professional/management roles. Public education is provided by Portage Community School District. The district operates eight elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school, maintaining a student-teacher ratio of 21:1. With a strong economy and quality schools, Portage is practical, but what makes the city so livable is the variety of recreational activities available. Chicago, close enough for a day trip, provides museums, performing arts, fine dining, professional sports and more. Locally, residents have access to a public marina, the paved and ever-expanding Prairie-Duneland Trail and over 500 acres of parklands. Hiking and swimming are also available at the nearby Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
