Considering moving to Portand - where do we start

We are considering relocating to the portland area and have done some research, but were interested in a local perspective. We would like to here more about several things starting with where to stay when we visit.

Our situation is this...we live in Chicago (in the city) and are tired of being in a huge city (traffic, stress, expensive). We had the opportunity to live in New Orleans for about 9 months and fell in love with the "big" little city. We lived in a family oriented "walking" neighborhood where everything we needed (grocery, restaurants, park, zoo, healthclub, activities) were all within a 15 minute walk. My husbands commute was 20 minutes to downtown. We lived in a three bedroom home that was dated, but very functional (about $570K).

We are hoping we can find another big, little city and are wondering if Portland might be it.

Any info you can provide....hotels, neighborhoods, child friendly activities (we have a one year old daughter) would be much appreciated.
