Why We Love It

Portland, nicknamed "The City of Roses", is known for its lush rose gardens, eco-friendly people, scenic beauty, outdoor environment, emerging food scene, coffee, and large number of microbreweries. Sometimes referred to as a big small town, rather than a city, it's home to museums, parks, shopping (no sales tax!), farmers markets, bike lovers, and many athletic and shoe manufacturers.
