  • Portland is known for its quirks, what do you find especially cool about living in Portland?

    As a Portland native, and a graduate of the University of Oregon, I am deeply rooted in the Northwest and all that it has to offer. Portland’s diverse culture is one of many qualities that make this city so wonderful. I love that we have neighborhoods like the Pearl that are strewn with art galleries, quaint restaurants and boutique shops. By simply circling the block I encounter an Italian pasta house, a Japanese eatery, a Swiss bakery and an all-American Jazz bar. If I go a little farther, I’ll hit a variety of coffee shops, art studios and clothing stores. There is no excuse for boredom in a place like this!
