Portage is relatively young, compared to many cities in Northwest Indiana and is the largest city in Porter County.  The community became a town in 1958 and incorporated as a city in 1968.

The Countryside Museum celebrates the history of Portage Township in a turn-of-the-century farmhouse operated by the Portage Community Historical Society. True to the name "Portage," this area provides several marinas, boat launch facilities, and landings that provide access to Lake Michigan.

National Steel opened a plant along the shore of Lake Michigan in Portage in 1959. This brought in about 1,600 new jobs. The Port of Indiana was also built in 1961 to accommodate trade with the world via Lake Michigan. In 1963, Bethlehem Steel began construction of a plant which was located partly in Portage. This project brought about 6,000 jobs to the area.

Over ten local parks, trails, the river walk, the Portage gazebo, sports courts, and a community center are just a few of the local attractions.  The small-town atmosphere creates a feeling of pride and belonging, attributes that attract newcomers to a family-oriented lifestyle.

The Portage Community Market is held every Sunday from 11:00am to 3:00pm, beginning June 1st and ending September 28th. 

A Haunted Hayride is held at Woodland Park each October.
