title pretty much says it all , myself and a couple friends are moving out there soon to play music, the only really thing we need to be close to is public transport

Thanks, Cody

I live in the Woodstock area, which is SE Portland. I like Belmont to Woodstock or Reed...and no further east than 72nd. If your band has a trailer, look for a place with solid off street parking. Honestly everything varies so much street to street it makes it tough to suggest an area. Check out Woodstock, Sellwood, Lauralhurst, Belmont, Hawthorne and maybe Arleta-Broadway. NW Portland is real nice, parking and no yards pushed me to the other side of the river. I wanted to like St. Johns but it's went further downhill from how I remembered it back in 2004ish.

Depends on your lifestyle. Do you go to clubs/bars every weekend? Do you like lively bars, dive bars, clubs, country bars, etc...

As for public transportation the MAX runs from Gresham to Hillsboro. Personally I would stay away from Gresham if you want to live close to the Max. Violence follows the Max tracks. I, Jason, Zach and Joe live in the Beaverton/Tigard area. 15 minute to downtown Portland without all the bullshit of Portland.

If you have specific questions ask away. I'm a medic in Portland so I know the good and bad places to live

thanks again guys, those are pretty much the areas that other people have told us, are there any places to watch out for in beaverton, they seem to have good house prices, also it would be nice to be close to bars to be able to go to/run an open mic and able to go to shows

Like tent camping? I don't think there are any places in the metro area for that. Browns camp is 30 minutes to the west off of hwy 6

I've lived in the Portland area for about 30+ years now. I've seen changes of course. I personally live out in the Sandy area, I like it cause its close to the mountain and to town but has that small town feel. Clackamas is a nice area as well. The MAX runs to Clakamas town center which is the big mall for the area. Soon it will be running to Oregon City. I would agree to stay away from the inner parts of Portland. But Good Luck and Welcome!!!!
