Review of Portland, Oregon

trendiness and homelessness plague
Star Rating - 7/9/2020
Lived there 5 years and couldn't wait to leave. No place I'd rather be than the PNW in the summer, but doesn't make up for the other 9 months of cold gray. If you love going out to trendy theme shops ("did you see the new surf-hat-coffee shop on Sandy??!", "Dude, check out the new wooden spoon-coffee shop") and homeless people doing drugs and pooping on your driveway (under your trash can so you wouldn't find it until it was welded to the cement days later) then you're in luck.
