I don't live there though I used to work in that area. South Portland is a nice town. It is spread out compared to many of the towns in the area. The city side near the Casco Bay bridge is a bit congested and the traffic flow is a bit weird with lots of one way streets. The streets fan out into some really nice neighborhoods.
The City seems to be split into three or four distinct areas. There is the Maine Mall area, great for all kinds of shopping and chain restaurants, then there is Broadway which has a more neighborly feel with old sandwich and pizza places and finally the city side as mentioned previously. There is another area called Spring point near the entrance to Portland Harbor which is quite scenic Overall it's a nice place in my opinion.

South Portland is a nice community with fine schools. Taxes are probably a little cheaper than Portland, but nothing is diminished by living in SP. I lived there two times.
