Firstly, the people. Everyone I meet is interesting, unique, friendly, and most seem to be excited about the area and meeting new people. People here seem to be really engaged with life and that is appealing. It seems that everytime I leave my house and go anywhere, I make a friend! Secondly, there is just SO much to do here. I can tell that I'm not going to be bored anytime soon! Lastly, I really LOVE the lush surroundings. I moved here from Reno and lived in the San Francisco bay area and Lake Tahoe prior to that. Portland, just has a glimpse of each of those places and combines it into the BEST CITY EVER. Not to be dramatic, but I really love it here.
3 years, moved from Reno/Tahoe area (3 yrs in Reno, 3 in Tahoe).
I'm up for just about anything!
Hi! I moved here in December 2011 and have two little girls, Chlöe and Tessa. I am LOVING Portland so far and having a great time meeting people and finding new things to do.
