I just go look in /dev
Here is the result of an  ls tty*

kp4djt at kp4djt64:/dev$ ls tty*
tty    tty17  tty26  tty35  tty44  tty53  tty62      ttyS12  ttyS21  ttyS30
tty0   tty18  tty27  tty36  tty45  tty54  tty63      ttyS13  ttyS22  ttyS31
tty1   tty19  tty28  tty37  tty46  tty55  tty7       ttyS14  ttyS23  ttyS4
tty10  tty2   tty29  tty38  tty47  tty56  tty8       ttyS15  ttyS24  ttyS5
tty11  tty20  tty3   tty39  tty48  tty57  tty9       ttyS16  ttyS25  ttyS6
tty12  tty21  tty30  tty4   tty49  tty58  ttyprintk  ttyS17  ttyS26  ttyS7
tty13  tty22  tty31  tty40  tty5   tty59  ttyS0      ttyS18  ttyS27  ttyS8
tty14  tty23  tty32  tty41  tty50  tty6   ttyS1      ttyS19  ttyS28  ttyS9
tty15  tty24  tty33  tty42  tty51  tty60  ttyS10     ttyS2   ttyS29
tty16  tty25  tty34  tty43  tty52  tty61  ttyS11     ttyS20  ttyS3


Now plug in usb serial port and execute ls tty* again:

kp4djt at kp4djt64:/dev$ ls tty*
tty    tty17  tty26  tty35  tty44  tty53  tty62      ttyS12  ttyS21  ttyS30
tty0   tty18  tty27  tty36  tty45  tty54  tty63      ttyS13  ttyS22  ttyS31
tty1   tty19  tty28  tty37  tty46  tty55  tty7       ttyS14  ttyS23  ttyS4
tty10  tty2   tty29  tty38  tty47  tty56  tty8       ttyS15  ttyS24  ttyS5
tty11  tty20  tty3   tty39  tty48  tty57  tty9       ttyS16  ttyS25  ttyS6
tty12  tty21  tty30  tty4   tty49  tty58  ttyprintk  ttyS17  ttyS26  ttyS7
tty13  tty22  tty31  tty40  tty5   tty59  ttyS0      ttyS18  ttyS27  ttyS8
tty14  tty23  tty32  tty41  tty50  tty6   ttyS1      ttyS19  ttyS28  ttyS9
tty15  tty24  tty33  tty42  tty51  tty60  ttyS10     ttyS2   ttyS29  ttyUSB0
tty16  tty25  tty34  tty43  tty52  tty61  ttyS11     ttyS20  ttyS3

The one in red is the USB serial port.

As indicated by Fred...
Here is the prefered option if you want a lot more info:
kp4djt at kp4djt64:/dev$ tail -f /var/log/syslog

NOW plug in your USB device and you will get loads of info on it

Oct  4 07:51:21 kp4djt64 mtp-probe: bus: 2, device: 9 was not an MTP device

Oh yes, all of this is done from the command line.

Note, the log file may be different for you depending on the distro. Use
tail -f
to poke around in the different log files. Some like to put it in dmesg,
others in
some other log file. But it will be there somewhere.
