Portland population 585,000 (2.2 million metro) is called North America’s “Best Big City” by Money Magazine. Among the factors that make Portland a city worthy of this title are its thriving cultural scene, outstanding natural beauty, world-class dining, and efficient public transportation. The beginning of the 20th century brought secure lumber mill jobs and money from the California Gold Rush, stabilizing the economy. Where once a seedy waterfront stood, today Portland’s pedestrian-friendly downtown and limits on growth have made it a comfortable place to live.
Martini bars are very popular, especially in the Pearl District. Many venues have late night happy hours and many restaurants provide substantial discounts on food ordered after 9pm. Brew pubs are extremely popular and remind residents of Portland’s heyday of brewing popularity during the 80s. Portland boasts more microbreweries and brew pubs than any other city in the United States.
