I have lived in different states and travelled to many more, all states have some good some bad. Oregon has a lot of good stuff so it would have to be based on what a person likes.
One drawback to Oregon/Portland is the lack of Broadway type shows and ballet/opera type entertainment. They are
here but not a lot of it for the size of Portland anyway.
You have to come here to see for yourself, Oregon is a great state!
