The Portland Way of Life

One thing that anyone new to the Portland Metro region soon learns is that people really do enjoy being outdoors. Even a bit of rain won’t stop people from hitting the hiking and biking trails. After all, that’s what weatherproof clothing is for! Everywhere you look, there’s plenty of green and the vistas are outstanding, no matter the time of year. A snow-capped Mt. Hood or one of the 77 glittering waterfalls along the Columbia River Gorge on a summer afternoon are just some of the reasons people prefer to be outdoors practically year round. In addition, there are numerous parks in the area with everything from hiking and biking to swimming pools and dog parks.

Not that there isn’t an appreciation for the great indoors. After all, Portland often seems the home of the hipster and that means plenty of great shopping, coffee, local breweries, and cultural events. Whether you’re in Gore-Tex or Gucci, or homegrown Columbia Sportswear, you’ll find activities and locations that make you feel right at home in the Portland Metro area. Do some shopping at Pioneer Courthouse Square, find the perfect book at Powell’s Books, grab a doughnut at Voodoo Doughnut, visit the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, or find some original local art for your new home in downtown’s Pearl District.

While people in this area are known to be friendly and easy going, you’ll still find plenty of innovation and exploration that benefits the community, consumers, and the environment. Technology, health care, clothing design, and even manufacturing are all major players in employment in the region, and there’s a wealth of creativity to be found wherever you go.

The Portland Metro area serves up the perks of bigger city living, while still letting you immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature. Quirky or conservative, this is an area where everyone can feel at home, especially in a Garrette Custom Home.
