Although you may want to come to the west side of the state because people who reside in Eastern Oregon are Aspie-phobic and think they are holier than thou!

Oregonians drink clean water all the damn time! :P

Portland is a great city to encounter. :P
Portland has great music & art scenes, along with awesome food scenes. :D
It is Aspie-friendly, but you may have to explain your Aspergers in three sentences. :)
We have bus, light rail, and streetcar. Tickets are $2. :)
There is also a tram, but tickets are $4, give the fact it cost $60 million to do. :evil:
It is a very popular bike-friendly city, so bring your bike! :P
Portland has seven colleges you can choose from, the most popular being Portland State University and Portland Community College, so Portland is a college city! :P

Portland is very liberal with great intellectuals who will welcome Aspies.
From best estimates, 20-30% of Portlanders fall into the LGBT Spectrum.

I could go on & on about Portland, but that is all I could come up with.


AMEN I happen to live in eastern oregon for the last 10 years, and it is horrible. I've lived lotsa places, all over the western US and the only place worse than eastern oregon was idaho. THis little town has quite a few redneck bullies in it


How about northern Idaho? I've lived in Tensed, and it's not so bad (except for all the dust and dirt). And why don't you live anywhere in western Oregon? I've lived all over the western side of Oregon, and I wasn't really disappointed.

Ugh, why do people bother ressurecting old posts from the dead? It's been four years, just make a new one!

Anyway, I saw my old response about New Palestine, Indiana and I still agree with it lol That town sucked so bad. On the topic, I'd say anywhere in Indiana probably isn't an overly friendly place. The South in my experience has been so much nicer and everyone's been much friendlier. So I guess anywhere from Kentucky through Texas is good in my book :wink:

Because responses from four years ago are still relevant and not all of us saw it four years ago?

I've found that college towns tend to be friendlier than non-college towns.

One more vote for Boston, MA. It's the home of MIT, one of best nerd schools. The Route 128 belt is home to hundreds of tech companies. There's plenty of ASD support resources.

husband's job.. puts us here. You're right about norther idaho, my experience was with eastern idaho.... Idaho falls area. icka. I grew up on the west coast and I didn't really experience too much difficulty, until I moved to smaller and smaller towns. I would live in northern idaho in a heartbeat, if it was accessible to the husband's job.

Portland area was the first place I felt I could really put in roots.

Of course anywhere there is high-tech is my kinda place...

Would you consider Amsterdam an Aspie-friendly city?

Monowi, Nebraska. It is an incorporated village in Boyd County, Nebraska, United States. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 1. It is the only incorporated municipality in the United States with such a population. According to tradition, the name Monowi means "flower" in an unidentified Native American language. Monowi was so named after the many wildflowers growing at the original site of the village.

Hell is other people.

Okay...maybe not Portland after all because in part for three reasons that make Portland a dystopic hell.

-Homeless Situation

(The homeless are often moved around by the city like cattle, sometimes ostracized by actual residents around them and are believed to be involved in the destruction of many outdoor areas of Portland.)

-Police Brutality

(A recent example of police brutality is in the Summer of 2018, a black man named Jason Washington was murdered in cold blood by two white security officers who work for my school. In fact, Jason was murdered just because he was trying to break up a fight but said security officers believed otherwise about him.)

-Incompetent City Leaders

(It's obvious as to why this is.)
