The Portland Rundown

In Willamette Valley, visitors will find the city of Portland, Oregon, tucked away in the hills. Here along the Willamette River, this city is lush and green with beautiful countryside filled with farms and vineyards. Portland has Mount Hood to explore to the east, as well as parks and many open spaces to enjoy in the city. From the Tom McCall Waterfront Park to the friendly downtown area, this northwestern city makes for a great holiday. The city stretches the length of the Willamette River. Across from the river, the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade is a popular spot for annual events and festivals as well as local joggers and bikers.

Also considered an environmentally conscious city, Portland has over 30 certified green buildings. From hiking boots to high heels, this city offers visitors a wide array of activities and attractions from which to choose. For all ages, the Oregon Zoo, the International Rose Test Garden, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry are all must-sees while visiting. The rose garden is best viewed from the months of May through September, which is also a great time to come and enjoy the Portland Farmers Market on Saturdays in the South Parks Blocks. Whether it is a holiday filled with hiking or high class, Portland is the natural choice for an ultimate vacation

General Information

A jewel of the Pacific Northwest, Portland may not have the flash and dash of Seattle or Vancouver, but the premier city in the state of Oregon has a quiet charm that is rare to discover in brash America. A notable pioneer on urban environmental policy, the green and eco-concious city boasts one of the most progressive and active citizenry of any on the continent, let alone the country.

Known as the Rose City, Portland has few thorns for tourists. In fact, the city with a metro population of over 2.1 million has seen an explosive rise in visitors in recent decades. A vibrant arts and cultural scene, growth of a superb wine and microbrewery industry throughout Oregon and new breed of culinary innovators all deserve credit for Portland’s wave of good publicity. Of course, the city remains one of the foremost recreational urban areas in America, with a vast network of bicycle paths, parks and nature trails.
