8 Things Longtime Portlanders Wish They Could Tell Newcomers

Portland is new for many of you out there, but as longtime residents know, Portland is a city like many others. Sure, we have one of the most beautiful landscapes, great food, wonderful people, and a thriving arts scene. But just like many other cities, we have our share of ups and downs. If you are new to the City of Roses, here are 8 things you should know.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
