Subject: RE: Minnesota or Portland - Where is better to live?
I am ex-UK and have lived in the Portland OR area for 15 yrs. USA for 23 yrs.
Almost everything hits the mark with the above post. It does NOT rain as much as the poster says it does (for this go to Seattle) the summers are gorgeous. For running Minn. is good but Portland is better. Portland the city also is more Euro in feel - I like it and if you are a hipster it is NOT overrated. For an Anglo both places will feel remote but the Pac. NW will likely feel more cut-off from the rest of the world.
If you like mountain hiking, of course, there's no contest, and of course there's that little thing called the Pacific Ocean. As a Brit I feel really weird NOT being near the sea - and no, lakes don't substitute.
