As Oregonians just wish everyone would stop moving to our beloved state and have become increasingly frustrated with the huge growth in recent years, another report recently has confirmed Portland to be one of the best places to live in the United States.

The report that went out Tuesday, by U.S. News and World Report, brings Portland in at #6 for the 25 most livable metropolitan cities. According to the news, we have jumped from number 32 in just 2017, due to “a strong job market and consistent growth in population,” as well as residents view of “Portland as a highly desirable place to live.”

The absolute best place to live in 2018? Austin, Texas. Hit up the list here to see for yourself.

Is it really that great here in Portland? Let us know in the comments.
