I think Portland is the absolute F*****G worst place to live. The west side of Oregon is mostly just terrible.
Sure there are places like Coos Bay and Newport which are nice but I hate that side of the state. I've lived in Baker City on the East side of the state for 18 years and it's probably the nicest place you could live in Oregon. Portland however is so awful I actively avoid it if I have to go to say, Seattle. I'd gladly add an extra hour or two to my journey to avoid that vile city. The majority of people are Bums and Hipsters. And the drivers are rude as f**k and traffic is always atrocious. I'll never go back as long as I live. Rant over.
Every time I visit Portland I am reminded of how much I love it. The atmosphere ia always vibrant and the people are so nice! There are so many things to do that you will never be bored.
Breweries on every corner. I love to go from brewery to brewery and taste all the different beers. Portland is the epitomy of melting pot. There are so many diverse groups and fron that comes a large market of ethnic foods. You can find any ethnic food you can think of.
Real slow on homeless problem,drugs,murder,on biking trail,assults,r**e,little patrol awful.
Omsi is awesome,bad neighborhood but awesome exibits,down town is new buildings but crime is awful,beggars NO WALKING PATROL POLICE gov.is slow to act on riots and never calls National Guard!!! Looting,burning during supposed rally or protests.awful mayor n horrible governor.
I have lived in Portland for 15 years, but am from eastern Oregon. Having experience living in both rural and metropolitan areas, I can tell you that there are a lot of things that I miss about eastern Oregon, not the least of which is the wonderful, down-to-earth, people that live there. Most live there by choice to get away from the rat race in metro living. You can breathe fresh air, drive without the jerk behind you tailgating and cussing you out, enjoy the beautiful expanse of wilderness, and you can actually see the stars at nighttime... hmmmm, sounds to me like eastern Oregon is a terrible place to live ;) Don't ever move there! LOL
