The crown jewel of Oregon is the city of Portland. Known for its quirky, avant-garde culture and home to iconic coffee shops, boutiques, farm-to-table restaurants, art museums and microbreweries, Portland is the place to be. But Portland and other popular cities along the coast have seen a 7.5% increase is housing costs in the past year. Shoppers you’ll be thrilled that there is no sales tax.
If you relocate on the west coast of Oregon don’t forget to bring an umbrella, raincoat and boots. The average precipitation for the year is 200 inches! Unfortunately there have been extended periods of smoky skies due to the long-lasting forest fires nearby.
