Default San Deigo VS. Portland

When I say Portland, I mean Portland, OR for those of you who are confused about what I meant.

Anyways, I'd like to get a good feel of both cities. Been to San Deigo before, really liked it, but never to Portland.

The criteria to do comparisons on;

- Growth
- Diversity (food)
- Diversity (Economy)
- Diversity (People)
- Education
- Professional sports
- Parks/Recreation
- Waterfront
- Skyline
- Public transportation
- Airport
- Natural Scenery

You may include the metropolitan area.

Those would be the criteria. Please keep this civil and on topic, discussions about certain aspects of a city are okay, but please don't boast about or bash a city not in this thread.

I think both are great for everything you said. San Diego may be more diverse, but both cities could work on getting in more minorities, to be honest. I definitely think that San Diego has better weather, with it's 300 days of sunshine and average temperature of 70F. I also love all the tropical plants in San Diego, and the beaches (San Diego has much warmer water than Portland). But Portland is very pretty, and I like all the lush greenery and mountains. San Diego has nice mountains, but it is way too dry.

This thread sat around for three whole years with not one response and suddenly someone pulled it from the grave.

Yes I know, I remember when Danny was posting here and he has been gone a good long while (I liked him, hope he's doing well). I'm just noticing a trend of Portland vs. some unusual matches(Houston, Atlanta, etc) lately here so I added a little humor to it. EJ, Arkansas is gonna go gang busters on Portland!
