well,if you are getting the same pay,keep in mind pdx will give you ALOT more for your money,housing wise. You can rent a gorgeous home for 2k,and can most likely find something for less. PDX has so many famil friendly neighborhoods,as well. For a family,I would vote PDX. Though of course families are in seattle and happy there. But given the choice,PDX is smaller,less congested,has amenities and resources,and multiple school options,including public charter schools,special magnet programs,etc. I would go with that option,if it were me. You can always take a vacation to seattle,while living in pdx.
