So I'm 23 and a female. I like to get out with friends and have fun. I'm thinking about packing up and starting a new sheet on my life and always thought Portland was nice. I was just curious how it is there if anyone could let me know and would it be a nice fun place to start over for a young girl. Thanks
Jade-I am a native Portlander, lived here all my life. Have traveled and seen other places, nowhere else I'd rather live! A couple of hours from the Pacific Ocean and Phoenix/walkable beaches (very clean and not crowded as Oregonians tend to NOT treat the earth as a garbage can) equally close to winter skiing and hanging out at the great Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, if you are into outdoor activities this is the place for you – but it's a secret, don't tell anybody! We don't want to be overrun with people from other places moving here. If you do, in short order you will understand and be one of the exclamation Portland is eclectic, urban enough to offer everything you would want in shopping and clubbing and recreation yet 'small-town enough' not to be like LA.
