About The Area

If you only know Portland from TV or the the tagline “Keep Portland Weird!” it might be surprising to learn that it’s not just a city full of naked bike rides, craft brews and artisan, shade-grown bird-friendly coffee. It’s also consistently ranked as among the best cities to live and work in in the US, and beats out thoseĀ other cities (yes, we’re looking at you, Seattle) as one of the most livable cities in the world. A quickly growing city, Portland boasts a surprising number of amenities you’d expect in a bigger city despite only having only 2.4 million people in the city and surrounding metro area.
