A city full of bikes, books, bars, beers, boutiques, baristas, brunch and Bloody Mary's, as well as a million neighborhoods worth visiting for their bars, boutiques and brunch. Portlanders also love gelato, food carts, parks, facial hair, plaid flannel, vintage shops, colleges, public transportation, liberals, reusable grocery bags, vegans and vegetarians, tattoos and piercings, and dogs, and unlike residents of Seattle who claim to love the rain, Portlanders don't like it that much (but still refuse to use umbrellas). And it's true, all the hot girls do wear glasses. Also it's totally possible to bike from southeast to St. Johns in an hour because it's not a real big place.
Oh my god, you see those hipsters over there? They're sooo Portland.

A funky city, where you can find nice people, a cool downtown, and nice houses. Known for it's name, "The city of roses", Portland is a green city. Portland citizens only have one problem, the weather. Portland is also known for it's gloomy weather. From experience living there, I must say that its a good city, but the weather is terrible. Portland is located in north Oregon.

Biggest City in Oregon

Weather:
Winters are 30-40ish on avg. mix of rain, and sunny/cold days.
Spring is sopping wet
Summer ranges from warm to sweaty balls.
Fall gets wet again.

Most strip clubs per capita than any other city in the US, and strippers get fully naked (o)(o) :D

We are known as the City of Roses...and some dumb politician changed it to "The City that works"...LAME...all residents ignored that, and still call it the City of Roses.

in 2011 Portland Timbers turned pro MLS.
favorite chant: "build a bonfire, build a bonfire, put Seattle up on top, put Vancouver in the middle and we'll burn the whole fucking lot!!!"
Timbers Army is known as the roudiest/loudest/intimidating MLS fans in the nation!

Coffee Drinkers galore, but real friends don't let friends drink Starbucks!!!! fuck their burnt ass coffee beans!

Beer heaven

Lots of recycling goin on!
for pop/beer/water bottles, you have to pay $0.05 deposit during purchase...then later can recycle to get your $0.05 back...but i despise waiting 1hr in a line to redeem $7 worth, so I always leave em for the bums.

Not everything is outdoorsy, like most larger cities there's a plethora of bars, strip clubs (woo-hoo boobies!), night clubs, restaurants, museums, golf courses, movie theaters (including omni-max), the list goes on and on...but i'll stop here.

The best city in the US. Its located in Oregon, beautiful and green. Downtown in Portland has the most sketchy people. The totally fun place to be. It has so much to see, like portlandia, interesting people, and beautiful trees and sunsets. I've lived in Portland all my life and I always want to live here. Also, Portland has the most amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing restaraunts, from thai food to italian to chinese to american to indian to spanish to mexian to everything else. Come to Portland the place of yummy food and 0 sales taxes :)
A super awesome weird city called Portland Oregon.

Portland is the largest city in Oregon, USA and is well know for its Forest Park and the Rose Garden. It is sometimes rainy, but it is sunny just as often. Portland gets wet winters, chilly-warm springs, warm summers, and cool falls. It is near both the Pacific Coast and the Colombia River. It surrounds an area of the Willamette River. It is decked with trees and flowers. It has peaceful neighborhoods on the east side of the river and a busy downtown area on the west side. The schools there are great and the city is packed with assorted resturaunts that will suit even the pickiest eaters. It is considered one of the most children-friendly cities around. There is also Portland, Maine.
I am thinking of taking a vacation this winter to Portland, OR, where there won't be snow piled up outside my door each morning.

Okay, everyone says portland is indie and grunge and earthy and hippie and weird. It is, kinda, but i live here and i'm a perfectly normal, average female teenager. Okay? It's still cool even though it's in a state thats "green" It is know for things other than indie grunge stuff. I'm just trying to break the portland stereotype. AND IT IS NOT TRYING TO COPY SEATTLE!! Just FYI people.
guy1: wow portland is so weird. it has like tons of hippies and stoners.
guy2: dude, it's actually pretty normal.
guy1: oh.
