Just got here? Awed by how this amazing city has all the good things that make bigger cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia awesome, while not having the bad things that come with those places such as high murder rates, traffic gridlock, and horrible weather? Love the whole “Keep Portland Weird” vibe? That’s how I felt when I first saw this awesome city, and my husband and I immediately started making plans to move. I know what it is like to be a newcomer here — thrilling — and I can help you navigate the various neighborhoods of Portland to help you find the perfect one for your lifestyle and budget.
Portland has so much neighborhood pride — there are dozens of neighborhood associations. The boundaries between neighborhoods are sometimes in a little bit of dispute, with two areas claiming the same turf, but in general we’ve tried to divide the site up so you can find your way around. Hope this helps you and that you too become a Portlander.
