Yes. Life's good here.
People say we’re a different breed up here, which is funny because we haven’t all come from the same place. But Portland is a place to be at home. Even as the pace changes with the seasons and life changes with the years, you can find continuity here. Our port city will always smell like the sea. Life is layered; history is present, yet there’s always room for something new. Here, people prefer collaboration to competition; you don’t have to go it alone. In our small city, it's almost true that everyone knows everyone, from social circles to the street. There's a way to make Portland your own.
