Rain, hipsters, unchecked homeless drug addicts, entitled white people policing other entitled white people, bad attitudes resulting from personal choices, and the wonderful clout-driven pissing contest that is the local music scene.
I wasn't succeeding or feeling fulfilled in (actual city), so I moved to Portland in order to project the imaginary persona I see myself as to a bunch of other people who just moved here to do the exact same thing.

Portland is the largest city in Oregon and is located in the
northwestern part of the state, directly across the Columbia River from Washington.

Portland is known for its liberal politics, its many parks, independent music, independent businesses and its proximity to the Columbia River Gorge, the Cascades (Mt. Hood in particular), and the Pacific coast. Its nicknames include the City of Roses, Bridgetown, Stumptown and PDX (after the city's airport).

The city is divided into "quadrants" (there are actually 5 sections) north and south by Burnside St. and east and west by the Willamette River. North Portland is located norht of downtown, but east of the river which curves westward at that point.

Some well-known musicians from Portland include the Dandy Warhols, the Decemberists, Lifesavas, Sleater-Kinney, the Mooney Suzuki, Elliott Smith, the Shins, Stars of Track and Field, and Pink Martini. Famous authors from Portland include Chuck Palhniuk, Beverly Cleary, Ursula K. Leguin and Katherine Dunne.

Portland is located in the Willamette River Valley.

A city full of rich hip kids heavy in the indie new age liberal hipster movement coming out of mom and dads basementand funded by their wallets. There is literally so much white guilt in this town you can spread it on a bagel like cream cheese. Also a great place to get some coffee, followed by finding a dead heroin addict in a starbucks bathroom. Portland also has one of the greatest collection of hobo communities. You can't walk through down town without giving out 5 dollars in change, 12 cigarettes and also recieve some new trash ip from one of the above mentioned hipsters. Also do not talk to anyone. They may get offended
God i hope god emperor Trump walls of Portland before mexico.

I went to Portland on holiday to smoke some weed and drink some coffee,and came back with a large dildo collection.

1. A city in the northern part of Oregon, One of the only cool places in Oregon (unless you love nature) and one of the few cool places in the Northwest. It's a small city that has a good atmosphere and nice people. It ain't no mother fucking New York City but it still rules.
2. Portland, Maine
1. The City of Roses, PDX, Bridgetown, USA
2. Not as good as Portland, Oregon.

City in Oregon
Portland and orgy of metal, punk, and indie music culture.
a fucking awesome city that has everything that you will ever need. Full of hippies, punks, and rebellious teen's. Grunge never died here still alive and well though indie fan's will try to tell you otherwise. We got something for everyone, and if your not part of everyone... Get the fuck out

A city in Oregon where a keen stench of rebellion and hipster fills the air. Everyone hates everyone and you only fit in if you are homeless, beautiful, or own stock in Nike. The population of white girls increases at such a rapid rate that a Starbucks must be opened at every corner in order to prevent famine. No one knows if pot is legal or not but every 80 year old with "glaucoma" smokes it. The people of Portland also have their own dictionary that consists of: Yeah, Naw, Dope, Huh, and "No, it's too mainstream..." Pack some form of self defense as your current view of what's cool may be stolen and gang raped.
Person 1: " I live in Portland."
Person 2: " Sorry I don't have change."
