    Thank you.

    Portland is infested with hipsters. I'm thinking about buying a load of old shitty bikes, driving across the country in a u-haul and sell them for $200 bucks to those hip faggets.

    Seriously though, portland is pretty cool

    you can't swing a dead cat in Portland without hitting a strip club.....plus Voodoo Doughnuts are the shit



    of course Nittany Lion fans don't need to frequent strip clubs since they are always banging 10's on the reg

    Savannah is more of a walking city too. People walking outside at night having a good time. They are different things. Savannah has more of an old world European feel and Charleston a little more modern.

    The amount of cockroaches in Savannah is awful though. The place I lived was a row house built in 1883 and they would come up through the holes in the floor. Had to put corks in the spots to keep them out. Taking a walk down River Street at 10 and getting oysters is unbeatable.

    Being someone that travels to both Savannah and Charleston on the reg I have to say that Charleston is the better city. It has plenty of Old South charm that is mixed in well with the modern. You can walk the market area and King St and the chick ratio is top shelf :twocents:

    Jesus Christ talk about two polar opposite cities nightlife wise. Dallas is full of 50K millionaires that keep Express afloat and Portland is full of hipsters that try their hardest to keep American Apparel afloat, that's like an apples to steak comparison.

    I grew up in Portland & it is a great city.

    Ski a half day at Meadows & be at the coast in time for dinner at Gearhard GC?

    :golfclap:

    Best small cities = Boulder, Portland, Austin, Savannah, Charleston, San Antonio...
