Welcome to Oregon, the Pacific Northwest. There are so many thing good to say about Portland that are to numerous to list. One thing for sure is that you will get the complete four-seasons with some seasons lasting longer than desired (winter, but not harsh) but there are so many thing to do and see. I transplanted from So. Cal. many years ago and still adjusting to Oregons weather. The good things about the weather is that it is clean. Portland is the most beautiful area I have ever lived. I personally enjoy the West side in the suburbs.
Nike World Headquarters is located in Beaverton, Several Intel plants are located on the Westside, in Hillsboro. We have our own silicon Valley with many peripheral businesses in the electronic business.
The beautiful coast is only 1.5 hrs away, the columbia gorge is less than 30 min. away, Central Oregon desert is a couple of hours away, Mt. Hood is only 45 min. away. Nothing is more beautiful than the Oregon Coast and mountains. If you like hiking, motorcycle riding, sports, camping, night life....you have found the right place.
Good luck with your move.
