Moving to Portland

During the early 1900s, the City of Roses had a reputation for being one of the most dangerous port cities in not only the United States but in the entire world. But since the 1960s, Portland has redefined itself into the charming city known for its trendy, hipster atmosphere we recognized today.

With a population of 632,300 in Portland, it is the largest city in Oregon and takes the third spot among cities in the Pacific Northwest. The area has generated a large number of well-known names including Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons television show. Also from the area are Beverly Cleary, famous author of popular books about the young girl named Ramona, as well as Gus Van Sant, Hollywood director of moves like Good Will Hunting.

Moving to Portland? PDX Movers are the top-rated moving company serving this great city and its nearby suburbs. Trust us to handle your upcoming relocation and enjoy a calm, stress-free transition to your new location.

Good neighborhoods span every corner of the city starting with the Pearl District, a family-friendly urban community with skyscrapers and a local art institute. Many young entrepreneurs and blue-collar workers have made their homes in the bustling neighborhood of Mississippi. While close to downtown, you’ll find Humboldt, one of the fastest growing communities in the city.

If you’re looking for fun things to do in Portland, take a visit to the Oregon Zoo which is home to rare breeds like red pandas, African painted dogs, and Asian Elephants. Another popular attraction is the Portland Japanese Garden with nearly 6 acres of gardens, waterfalls, and other gorgeous scenery. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, also known as OMSI, is also a fun experience with its planetarium, hands-on exhibits, and large theatre.

In the Portland School District, parents will find strong education programs at Ainsworth Elementary and Bridlemile Elementary, as well as West Sylvan Middle School for junior high students. The area is home to top-rated schools, including Lincoln High which is ranked among the top ten high schools in the state. Portland also hosts large 4-year colleges like Portland State University and the University of Portland.

In a thriving economy, Portland jobs aren’t hard to come by. Precision Castparts, a manufacturer of components for aircraft are the cities largest employer with over 30,000 workers. Another large company is the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), specializing in medical education, research, and clinical practice at their two local hospitals. Then there is Daimler Trucks North America, one of the largest engineering manufacturers of commercial vehicles and semi-trucks in the country.

When it comes to Portland weather, you can expect enjoyable temperatures in the mid-30s at the coldest and low 80s at the highest. Though you can anticipate about 37 inches of rain annually, the area still offers plenty of comfort with about 150 sunny days per year. It’s a great place for anyone seeking somewhere with cooler weather that doesn’t want to deal with snow.
