My wife and daughter are heading up to Portland for a school visit in December and I was curious to hear people's thoughts on the area surrounding the school. Anything especially good or bad about the area? If you attended the school, I'd love to hear your thoughts about all aspects of the school. She would be a nursing major if that makes a difference.
Any must see areas? msut try restaurants? in the Portland area
I have (2) weather related questions. Everybody know about the stereo-typical "wet" Pacific Northwest but how often does it actually rain. Is it like Hawaii where it rains 5 days a week but only for a few minutes a day or are there constant downpours? Does Portland ever get snow that sticks around? Sorry for the silly questions but I just read the unbrella thread and was surprised to learn that people don't use them.
