The City of Saco is located at the mouth of the Saco River in southern Maine along the Atlantic Ocean, less than 20 minutes south of the Greater Portland Area, and less than two hours north of Boston, Massachusetts. Home to a growing population of 19k+ residents, a revitalized and repurposed mill district, world-class education system, a picturesque downtown, a thriving economy, and many recreational opportunities, including fishing, hiking, biking, and kayaking, the City of Saco has plenty to offer residents, visitors, and businesses alike.
According to the 2012-2016 American Community Survey 5-year estimate, Saco has a population of 19,008 and growing, with a seasonal influx of 2,500 people. Like many other Maine communities, Saco’s once booming textile mill district is being repurposed into a combination of commercial, mercantile, and residential units. While Saco has experienced both industrial and commercial growth, residential growth has outpaced the others by far. What is even more desirable about the location is how close you are to many local attractions!
