15 Reasons to Move to the Pacific Northwest

Being from the Midwest, I’m not accustomed to large amounts of excitement or dramatic landscape changes… or being able to go outside during the winter. So, living in the Northwest is quite overwhelming for someone like me. I don’t think any place can compare to the natural and cultural beauty of the Pacific Northwest (aka: PNW). After moving back to Oregon, I’ve fallen in love all over again with the simply perfect combination of urban life, good food, lovely people and stellar landscapes.

Here are some of my pictures to illustrate why you really should come join the fun:
