Portland Oregon: Top Ten Reasons to Live (or not live) There?

Jump to last reply

Heaven help me, I'm thinking of moving to Portland, OR! I have already begun to research the area; however, having never been there before I have several questions.

1. What do you love most about living (or visiting) there?
2. What do you like least about the Portland area?
3. What kind of a feel/vibe does Portland have?
4. What are the current best job markets?
5. What "sealed" your decision to move there? (Scarlett?)
6. Does the NW Film Center have a good reputation?
7. What are the best moderately priced/middle-class suburbs to live in near Portland?
8. What would you like to share that I haven't asked about?

Obviously, I will be spending time in the area before making a final decision. In the meantime, I welcome any and all information you're willing to impart about this fantastic sounding region.

Thanks to all for your help and support during this difficult decision.

AL ((d))

PS Have already researched info on demographics, population, etc.
