Linda and I have called Portland our home since last year when we moved here to be near our children. After visiting Portland numerous times we decided to take the plunge and move here from the Midwest. We couldn't be happier. The Portland has a warm and friendly population. There are many local activities from hiking and trail walking to some of the most eclectic and adventurous dining anywhere, rivaling much larger and more expensive cities. Wine country, with over 100 working wineries and vineyards, is less than one hour away. Come see Portland and you will know why we stayed!
