Portland is a rapidly growing, well-loved city located at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers near the Washington and Oregon border. A mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, foodies, and artists alike, Portland is a culturally rich city that has become an increasingly popular travel destination in recent years. “Stumptown,” as some call it, hosts a wealth of events that you are sure to enjoy, including the world renowned Portland Rose Festival and Christmas Ship Parade. Known for its thriving hipster culture, as well being eco-friendly and safe, Portland is the ideal place to start exploring the Pacific Northwest.
The most densely populated and popular neighborhood in the metro area is the Northwest. This corner of the city boasts art galleries, Chinatown, celebrated restaurants, and the much sought after Pearl District. Other popular areas include the Northeast, which hosts the historic Hollywood District and is home to the Portland Trail Blazers basketball team. The local farm-laden Southeast is another point of interest, sitting atop Mt. Tabor, the city’s dormant volcano.
From exploring high-quality local food and craft beers to participating in countless outdoor activities, Portland has something for everyone. You can start off your day taking a stroll in Washington Park, which hosts a children’s museum, zoo, Japanese tea garden, International Rose Test Garden, arboretum, and forestry discovery museum. Relax and recharge at one of the local coffee shops, bakeries, or brewhouses before heading to the famous Saturday Market to shop for local artisan arts and crafts. Experience Oregon’s natural beauty with a kayak trip on the Willamette River or a hike through Forest Park. Keep an eye out for gourmet food trucks! Portland tends to have pop-up outdoor food, music, and art venues during the summer.
