So! A little about us, we're early 20s, grew up in small towns, moved to a small city about 3 years ago (Albany, NY). About to finish up college, and decided we don't want to stay here! At least, we don't think we do!
We're looking for a "small town" environment, yet still need to be close to a city (we're thinking Portland!), as the SO is a chef, and I will be graduating with a Bus Admin degree.
We have two dogs, a boxer, and a miniature pinscher, so dog friendly areas are a HUGE plus!
I've looked at crime statistics (as that's a pretty important issue for us!) and Beaverton looked super "safe", but then I went on here & saw some mixed reviews of it.
I was just looking to see if anyone had any suggestions for areas to look into in the Portland area (or even outside of the Portland area!).
OH! and of course! Cost does matter! We could probably swing anywheres under $1000 a month for an apartment, and we'd probably be looking for 800+sq.ft. (If that gives you an idea of price range?!) And of course, suburbia does NOT drive us insane, it's actually what we like. We're quiet geeky people with a hint of a wild side I guess!
