Question by Jimbo: Is Portland a good place to relocate?
I live in St. Louis, and I’m tired of the boring Midwest with its hot and humid summers, cold winters and ultra-conservative bible-bumping residents. Is Portland all it’s cracked up to be? How gay-friendly is the Portland area? I know domestic partnerships are legal in Oregon, but how do people really feel about it? What is the job market like? I’m in the healthcare/pharmacy field, are there many jobs? My partner has a degree in advertising and marketing. Sorry for all the questions… I just want to know what Portland is really like.
Sorry… I have more…
Is traffic really all that bad? I’ve heard people complain about Portland traffic before. Where’s the best place to live? I want to live close to the city in a modest house (2 to 3 bedrooms at a decent price) in a nice area — close to transit and whatnot. How far are the mountains? How far is the coast?
Again, sorry for all the questions.

If you like rain you will love Portland, its full of the ex hippies from Haight Ashbury in California…I would go to portland.com and look for their job market.
