A smallllll ass town in Indiana by Lake Michigan and Chicago filled with houses, houses, and more houses.. besides like a billion crappy fast food places and farm.

having the mooost smelly ass bowling alley and the small movie theater With crappy schools like Willowcreek, Fegley, Portage High and, Nativity.. its pretty boring.

I'd say the coolest part abut Portage is OD. the little town by the beach.

There is also some hot guys in Portage.Other than that it's full or nice houses and trailerparks.
