{Portland, Oregon}

Let’s be clear: this is what I think about Portland, Oregon.

I just happen to think that Portland is the best city.

People are passionate about Portland for all kinds of reasons.  I love Portland because:

  • It’s relatively clean
  • There’s lots of different neighborhoods and districts to explore, each with their own character
  • Emphasis on green living
  • Public transportation is amazing
  • The downtown area is flat!
  • Public parks around every corner
  • The year-round greenery {courtesy of the rain}
  • Lots of colleges and universities = it’s a young city
  • Reminds me a quaint version of New York City

Despite the fact that Portland is the perfect place to live, it’s not the only place I ever want to live.  I’d love to live abroad, or on the East Coat.  I am not one of those Oregonians who doesn’t understand why people move away.  Obviously there’s a whole world out there, and Portland is just one slice of it.  I hope to see a lot more of the world in the coming years.  But for now, I’m extremely satisfied with our little slice.
