Pros and Cons of living in Portland, Oregon?

shanen K Asked: Pros and Cons of living in Portland, Oregon?

I am 21 in college in Cincinnati, OH. My family and some friends are moving in the next few years to big cities like chicago or ny.. and I have been considering moving to Portland. Some things about me..
I am a vegetarian
I love the environment
I have 2 dogs and am majoring in an animal degree
I love the outdoors, hiking, the beach and would like to live by natural beauty.

I think a lot of these things are kinda what Portland is.. but I just want to be sure its the right place for me before I move across the country. lol Thanks for any advice

Hello, and congrats on the courage on considering moving away from home. Okay, i spent time in portland, and yes its green as hell, the air quality if almost perfect, you'll love the hiking, and rivers, and the smell of pine, etc. Nice people, and pretty quiet and secluded.However, it gets old pretty fast.In my opinion, if you want the best things of Portland, and add some city life, Your best bet is in the area north of San Fransisco. You have an amazing nature element, along with city life. Research it. Hope this helps. good luck on your travels.
