Portland is getting used to being listed as one of the top cities to move to. In December as reported by KGW-TV, the real estate company Movoto listed Portland as the most popular city in the US. In January data from United Van Lines showed Portland to be the top target of the most people relocating in the US. And now comes a report from Monocle Magazine, a global quality-of-life mag, that Portland ranks in the top 25 of the best cities to live in the world.  Here is the long version of their report.  For us locals, not a lot is new. (Oooh, smugness!)
