5 Reasons to Move to Portland, Oregon

Sick and tired of your current city? In a (desperate) need of a change? A digital nomad with a sense of adventure? Why then not pack up your stuff, move to Portland, Oregon and start fresh in a city that’ll amaze you!

One of the cutest cities on West Coast, Portland, Oregon is full of greenery, it’s a city with endless opportunity and a strong economy which makes it one of the best places to live. Just think about it: wouldn’t it be phenomenal to live in a city whose slogan is “Keep Portland Weird”? Exactly!

If you are taking moving to Portland, Oregon as an option, here are 5 reasons that’ll show you why that could be one of the best decisions you can make:

The Joy of Four Seasons

One of the rare cities that still gives four seasons a good name (no, not the hotel but actual season changes), Portland prides on the mix of oceanic climate in Western Oregon and a drier climate in Eastern Oregon. If you spend a year in Portland, you’ll get to experience mild and humid weather in winter, with an average temperature of 39.9 °F. There’ll be snowfall happening, too – at least a few times per year. Spring will treat you to somewhat intense (maybe that’s too strong a word) weather fluctuations with warm spells, thunderstorms, and rainfall. Both summer and fall feature dry heat until November. Once November sets in, you can unpack your rain boots and umbrella, at least until the first snowflakes start to fall. So many weather experiences in a single year!

Jobs, Jobs Everywhere

Why dream of your dream job when you can do it? Portland offers such an extensive array of possibilities for work and progress that you’ll be completely blown away!

The City of Roses seems to be the newest hotspot for all-things-technology. Yes, Portland’s all about forests and greenery, but have you heard of Silicon Forest? No? Well, you are about to. Portland houses some of the biggest tech start-ups like WaferTech, Intel, and Mentor Graphics, as well as Nike headquarters. With companies like Intel bringing in over 18,000 jobs, Portland’s economy is booming with new job opportunities. But, that’s not all; companies like Adidas North America, Keen, Columbia Sportswear, and Dr. Martens’ US Headquarters are also in the area, making Portland one of the richest job scenes around. So, if you are sick of your current job and are looking for a change of career, moving to Portland, Oregon could be the answer.

Taxi on Speed Dial

Getting places quickly, safely and in the utmost comfort is paramount of everyone’s busy life (and the laid back life, too). Cities like LA and NYC may have all the yellow four wheelers at their disposal, but they are rarely available and don’t really serve the purpose of taking you to your address (with all the horrific jams there, who could blame them!).

Portland, Oregon prides on a fantastic on-the-road dynamic, mostly owing to excellent public transport and taxicab companies that are absolutely perfect.

Portland’s pride and joy, Radio Cab, has been the first choice of both locals and out of towners, respectfully. Radio Cab is not only the nearest taxicab company nearby available 24/7 but also a team that’ll take you wherever you want to go in Greater Portland Area and Vancouver! Sporting a decades-long tradition, Radio Cab will help you with your daily chores, appointments, and all other transportation services you need. When you’ve got a reliable taxi service on standby, everything you do in a day gets handled easier and quicker! The way to reach Radio Cab? Just hit them up at 503-227-1212 / 360-694-1234!

Downtown Portland For the Win

Nothing beats Portland downtown! Walk, shop, eat, repeat – literally. Oh, and – take a crazy number of selfies because Portland needs to be recorded on camera, too! If you are coming to Portland for the first time and aren’t really sure whether to go first, you can always ask your Radio Cab cabbie to suggest a route OR go with the already popular sites like Pearl District, RiverPlace, Old Town Chinatown, and South Waterfront. For all the art buffs – whether those of you who are creating art or only admire it – Portland is a dream, too. With an array of street art murals and galleries, you’ll get to get inspired on a daily!

The Best Staycations

While most people dream of getting away, Portlanders are all about staycations! Although predominantly very business-like, Portland prides on fantastic outdoor activities such as skiing at Timberline, Ski Bowl, Mount Hood Meadows, Snow Bunny, biking, hiking at Tryron Creek State Park, Tamanawas Falls, Kelley Point Park, Forest Park, etc. or taking mini road trips close by. Pair your outdoor activities with sightseeing, and you are getting a portion of exercising with enjoying the gorgeousness of a city that’ll never bore you.

Still having seconds second thoughts about moving to Portland? Hardly. The city is a perfect combination of excitement and stability, so what is there not to like! And the taxis? Awesome! Start looking for a job in Portland, get your suitcase out, and get ready for a new chapter in your life! Oh, and – if you move to Portland, don’t forget to keep it weird!
