Welcome to Portland
Oregon's largest city used to seem like a well-kept secret: it had all the cultural advantages of a major city but the feel and affordability of a small town. But little old Stumptown is growing up, in many ways.
Most of the changes happening in Portland are for the better. Sure, parking might be a little harder, and grubby dive bars are now pretty scarce, but on the other hand, there's a coffee roastery and a craft brewery on just about every block. And the food carts – more and better than ever.
Portland has an almost unfair abundance of natural beauty – perfect parks, leafy trees, vibrantly flowering shrubs lining pretty residential streets, the Willamette River meandering through town, and Mt Hood on the horizon. And the open-minded, appealingly off-kilter vibe of the place – that whole 'Keep Portland Weird' thing – certainly hasn't changed. These days, there's just more to love.
