The "Why you should visit and/or move to Portland" blog.

1. I live here. Hai! So do boysbe-priscilla, chengui-brian & helmut13e-renee, margo (sometimes), mgill52, polynothing, renfrue (i think?), and hopefully soon, alvarejo.


2. Portland is the #1 most bicycle-friendly city in the USA, and the #2 in the whole world! evidence! moar evidence!



3. There's no sales tax here. Sales tax is dumb.


4. It's relatively inexpensive to live here (compared to many west-coast areas)


5. Oregon coast ftw.



6. Mt. Friggin Hood, dude. Snowboarding/skiiing right outside the city. :)



7. Portland has been named BEER CITY USA (tied with some town in NC, but still!)



8. There's like, lots of nature and stuff, right in the city:
Portland is home to the nation's largest urban wilderness — the 5,000-acre Forest Park. The Portland metro area boasts 37,000 acres of parkland. Portland has 278 public parks and 150 miles of trails.



9. Just for tracer-brian: Tons of gluten-free dining options!


Okay, can you move here now, plz?

It's moist?

courtney pie

like a brownie, a very special brownie.

boysbeambitious

It's moist, too.

People in Portland generally love rain because we get some pretty rainy days, but I'm not a fan.
BUT that doesn't stop me from loving this place either. :-)

boysbeambitious

LOL courtney. special brownies are special. :-D

Chipmnk

I love me some rain.

But then I'm the type of guy who looks up when it's raining. So.

There's that.

Twiggyhall

Want moar Portland times - had such a good time last time :)

lordog

i love the rain. i think it's beautiful. and it makes everything green. and it makes snow in the mountains.

please come down any time, twiggs!!!

what new avatart, cp? i is confused!

courtney pie

Click on mine.. it's not showing up yet.

boysbeambitious

I don't like the smell of things drenched in rain.
I think not liking rain makes me sound more unromantic for some reason lol.

lordog

ahahaha! sneaky stoli cran ftw!

mgill52

Portland has more adult stores and more strip clubs per capita than any city.

lordog

that's weird, i love the smell of everything in the rain.

with the exception of the pug. wet pug is not exactly pleasing to the senses.

boysbeambitious

Twiggyhall

We might be soon, Lor!

Scotty needs to train some new employees in the Portland office so hopefully we'll be heading down for that somewhat soon - I need to wait until after the 10/15 deadline before I can take a Friday off, tho'
