Portland-Deer

Being a Portlandian, I can tell you that we have our own way of life. There are things you see here that you just don’t see anywhere else. Portland is weird. Cool. A small town feeling in a big city.

10 Ways to Know You are From Portland

 

1. You still wear plaid flannel shirts and Doc Martens (and look awesome in them).
