I just came across a good article that had me reminiscing about being out in the great Pacific Northwest and might be interesting for anyone who is wondering what’s going on out on the opposite side of North America. The article compares the 3 major cities there, Seattle, Portland and Vancouver and opines on where Seattle is lagging behind. Portland is where I have stayed each time I have been out there. It’s a city that I have often thought other cities should take after and so I’m not surprised to see an article like this. I was highly impressed with what the city was doing to make itself more of a destination city as well as increase it’s appeal to it’s businesses and residents. Then again I didn’t think Seattle was that bad, although I’ve never had the chance to really dig in to it as much as Portland.
