Oregon ranked one of top states people “Most Want to Live”

December 5th, 2011

In a recent Harris Poll, Oregon was ranked #7 out of states people would most like to live in (apart from their own)! This poll has been conducted since 1997. Hawaii has dominated, being named the top choice with those polled every year. (Stupid beautiful beaches, beautiful sunny semi-tropical climate. Ick.) But Oregon has proven to be a staunch competitor. We’ve been in the top 15 every year. (Sorry North Dakota.) And recently jumped from #10 to our current #7 ranking. Which, not that we particularly noticed… but that’s 2 higher than little old Washington at #9… (Sorry Seattle.)
