Portland, OR: Perfect Combo of City and Nature
by Jenn and Paul Cola
One of the many gorgeous falls
My hubby and I just moved to Portland, OR 3 weeks ago from California, and this city/area is absolutely beautiful!
We were sick of the rat-race, nasty attitudes, and living in a desert. We went on the search for a place that wasn't too hot or too cold, had lots of nature and outdoor activities as well as plenty of city fun and night life.
We wanted great public transport, a respect for nature, and a love of community. We found Portland.
After taking a 10 day trip to check it out, we were so in love with it here that we went back to Cali, packed our stuff, and were back in a week for good!
The people here are some of the friendliest I've ever met, I feel safe walking the streets at night, and the plethora of things to do seems endless. We feel like we've finally found 'Home'.
And THIS website had a lot to do with our decision and helping us on our trip!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
