How do you describe Portland?
I loved this town. I was only there for two months and of all the places I’ve been, I felt the most at home and the most like I’ve found the place I want to end up. Expressive, quirky, environmentally and community conscientious Portland! I <3 Portland!

How do you describe Portland?
Portland is a very cliquey place that is very fascist about whether or not you fit in with the city’s image. Also, the state in general HATES outsiders and newcomers — particularly from California.
It’s soggy and dark around nine months out of the year, and the odds of an outsider finding a job there are slim to none unless you are very well-connected with the shi-shi postmodern cliquester social circles.
If you want to get the best idea of the kind of people who live in Portland, go to YouTube and watch the video called “Hipster Olympics”. Portland is totally ruled by uber-nasty hipster fascists.over 2 years ago
I was driving from Washington State to southern California and the I 5 freeway runs through the middle of the town. Though I didnt get a chance to stop I really admired the place. It was beautiful. A couple bridges and freeways winding over waterways below through the maajor metro areas. Of the many buildings there the ones that caught my eye were downtown. Several matching builiding all with emerald green glass window outers for its structure.over 3 years ago
Except for the idea that most of the year there is rain, that aside last I was here I had an opportunity to explore a very fine restaurant right by the Amtrak Station, as I am a person who truly enjoys train travel over plane travel.
I understand also that Oregon is very much a good place for bicycling, so my next trip there I really think I should ride my bike there as it is also along the Pacific Coast Trail after you leave from Vancouver, BC.over 3 years ago
I have spent most of my twenty-two years in Portland, and I love it here. I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather live, to be totally honest. It’s nice because it’s not too big and overcrowded, but it’s not so small that you get bored. It’s pretty clean, the people are mostly friendly, there is a ton of culture and really neat resources available to take advantage of, no matter what your interests are. I get considerably irritable with all the nut ball left-winged environmentalists, as well as the flamboyant and boisterous gay community, and especially with the damn bicyclists who think they are motorized vehicles. But none of those things are the end of the world. Portland is awesome in spite of its psychotic “green” cult. Lots of nice restaurants, pretty diverse populations, very trendy, maybe a little snooty sometimes, cool museums and lots of outdoorsy stuff if that’s your thing. I don’t mind the weather here, since I prefer to stay out of the sun. It seems to me like people exaggerate how much and how often it actually rains here. It’s no worse than Seattle. But I think it’s much nicer overall.over 3 years ago
I used to live in Portland until I was about 9 years old and have visited nearly every summer afterward. It’s an absolutely gorgeous city with a lot to offer, and about an hour out of the city you can enjoy a hike along the Multnomah Falls, the slopes on Mt. Hood, and the beautiful rocky Oregon coastline.over 3 years ago
