Who likes Portland?
Well, besides you… and us… well, it appears just about everybody does.
Portland was ranked the #1 “most liked” US medium-to-large city in an article on the online magazine “Money Journal,” receiving “like” votes from some 52% of Americans. Among the many reasons cited include Portland’s “culture, laid-back lifestyle, excellent public transit system and above all nice people.”
Yup, that squares with what we know.
It also squares with us beating out our rival to the north… you know, the one with that awesome football team. In third was another west coast city – Oakland, CA – and 7 of the 10 were west of the Mississippi.
Oh, there was another reason frequently cited. Our micro-brews.
We’ll drink to that.
