After San Francisco this is the next city with a big Gay Scene! probably #2 in America.
butch: I don't like the gays in San Francisco..where else can we go?
butch 2: I heard Portland is pretty gay
The largest city in the State of Maine and probably one of the best cities in the world. It may not be New York City, but it's still pretty awesome and has some of the best food in the country!!! Actually, years and years ago, Portland had some of the tallest buildings in the country. But like I said that was a long time ago. :)
Hey, have you been to Portland, Maine? That city is awesome!
Oregon's largest city, known for its gay mayor, Sam Adams, and his affinity for teenaged boys, Tonya Harding, and people who like to sit in drum circles (a hippie version of a Circle Jerk).
It's also know for it's higher than average percentage of women who refuse to shave Earthmuffins
, tree-hugging, effeminate men, and people who have a genuine hatred of any mode of transportation that isn't public or pedal powered.
Person 1: Hey, I just had a woman with hairy armpits, who smelled of Patchouli ask me to protest the city's lack of funding for people who want to change their gender. They're going to kick the protest off at a drum circle, and wrap it up by singing Kumbaya.
Person 2: Oh, well you must be in Portland, Oregon.
Person 1: Why yes, I am. How'd you know?--Oops, gotta go, I'm getting felched by the Mayor Adams.
A town in Connecticut that is full of pussies. Everyone in this town is hit and suck at sports. No one ever wants to fight because they are all hicks and pacifist. Everyone and anyone, guy or girl, is extremely ugly and beyond immature and have no fun what so ever.
Do you ever go outside and have fun, play sports, or date anyone?
No, I live in Portland
A city located in the Pacific Northwest, Portland contains people also known as hipsters, who only care about biking, the pursuit for a great cup of coffee, and lastly organic everything, not just food. Portland is a wannabe of Seattle and New York while also trying to strive in their own direction where people have mixed opinions on Portlander's lifestyle.
Wow, Portland is being taken over by hipster bike riders that decide to cruise on car lanes when they have empty bike lanes to the right of them, how nice and safe.
Portland is not the "wanna-be" Seattle so many say it is. It's just a smaller town that can't be Seattle. Geographical reasons alone make it impossible. While it's true that P-town (one of the other nicknames I have yet to see mentioned here) lacks the nightlife and "opportunities" for self destructive behavior to the tune of about 50% compared to Seattle, it also lacks the shitty aspects by about the same percentage. Liberal it is, and the only guys complaining about that don't live in Portland anyway - so I say let 'em sit in the closet wearing a cowboy had & mommys panties bitching about P-Town to their hearts content.
Portland is more laid back than Seattle, this being both a good and bad thing. The obvious reasons apply. The nicest things about Portland besides foody-friendly & other interesting establishments/sites to see within city limits are the Columbia Gorge (as incredible as the Grand Canyon but in a completely different way), ocean beaches no more than about an hour west, and COMPLETE climate change (including "suddenly" bright, clear blue sky and crisp clean high desert air/surroudings) which can be found only a 2-3 hour drive over the Cascade mountain range (Central Oregon - Bend). Bend is, however, the kind of place to vacation/visit ONLY - unless you're alreay rich & have at least come close to a mid-life crisis. It's tailored (or rather it "has been remodeled to tailor") to Cali people who want 2-3 times the house/property for 2/3 of what the home in Ca...
The largest city in Maine. About a hundred miles north of Boston, Massachusetts, Portland is built on a peninsula in Casco Bay. About 150,000 people live in the area, including South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, and other nearby towns.
The city has burned down and been almost completely rebuilt four times. One of the fires was caused by the town being ordered burned down by an angry sea captain denied service at a bar.
Portland, Maine is the city Portland, Oregon was named after in a coin toss. If the coin had landed on the other side, the city in Oregon would be called Boston.
Portland is also the birthplace of the authors Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Stephen King.
Portland is the best city in northern New England for the miles of beautiful rocky beaches. The snow is great in the winter, and the water off the coast gets warm enough to swim in by June.
