Think Out Loud

Seattle Vs. Portland Smackdown!

Pete Springer/OPB

No doubt Seattle has a lot going for it: Pike Place Market, Puget Sound, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Elliott Bay Book Company, the Space Needle.

But Portland doesn’t lack for attractions either. We’ve got Powell’s, Mt. Hood, the Columbia Gorge, Forest Park, food carts, and of course, our own TV show

Today, we pit the Northwest’s two biggest cities head to head and duke it out to establish, once and for all, which city is the best in the Northwest.

Have you lived in Portland and Seattle? What were your favorite and least favorite parts of each city? Why have you settled where you are now?
