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.
