A New Life in One of America's Most Fashionable Cities

As befits the Pacific Northwest, Portland is a modern, liberal city installed in an otherwise sleepy, rural state. The fashionable blends with the rough and ready in Portland, where microbreweries and pop-up restaurants abound. Although a sizable city itself, Portland has a laid-back feel which attracts a wide range of people from across the world, who often feel right at home with the diverse and community-focused nature of the city. With our members just as friendly and welcoming, join InterNations and make sure you can get settled in to become a part of the Portland Community!

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Jeddah, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
