Current Resident: I love Portland. "Funky" is alive and well. If you're like me and want a lot of options for things to do, but also the option to live a slower pace of live compared to SF, Chicago, NYC, etc., then you might fall in love with Portland. Be ready for very left-leaning politics. Portland definitelty prioritizes sustainability and the local economy. I love this! You don't see big box stores or billboards for banks - you see local family-owned businesses, and billboards for the SPCA. Wonderful food scene, excellent if you're at all interested in vegetarian, vegan, or health-focused foods.
Major drawbacks: it's getting more expensive, and there's extremely little diversity here.
