Portland Walking Tours

Portland is Number 2! And we’re just wonky about it.

April 15th, 2013

Are you nerdy enough to live in Portland?

Portland was ranked at No. 2 in a list of the Top 10 Nerdiest Cities in America, according to the real estate blog Movoto. Only Atlanta was considered “nerdier.” Seattle was ranked third.

The rankings were based on several factors, including:

  • Number of annual comic book, video game, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy conventions
  • People per comic book store, video and traditional gaming stores, computer store, and bookstore
  • People per LARPing group (whatever that is)
  • People per science museum
  • Distance to the nearest Renaissance faire

(Wait… aren’t those things kind of cool?)

We should be proud to be #2 on this list. After all, being ranked #1 is so… mainstream.
