Why Hallmark should make a Christmas movie in Portland

An open letter about our romantic and festive city.

Multnomah Falls... or a scene from “Water-falling for Christmas”?

Dear Hallmark,

We know it’s a busy time of year for you, so we’ll keep this brief. We’re writing to you today to let you know Portland, OR, is the perfect backdrop for your next Christmas movie.

We may be biased, but we think our city would be perfect for a made-for-TV holiday romance film (this is the City of Roses, after all):

As you can see, you’d save money on set production because Portland is already decked out in holiday vibes. And when it snows, you won’t need to worry about permits to close off a street because the whole city shuts down.

Happy holidays,

The PDXtoday Team
