Welcome To The Rose City

Nestled between the ocean and the mountains, Portland is a diverse and dynamic city chock full of bohemian neighborhoods, lush parks, and surprising attractions.

Start your day downtown, which fits nicely between the slow Willamette River and the Hillside neighborhood to the west. Watch river traffic at Poet’s Beach then stroll the Waterfront Greenway to the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Enjoy a staggering view of the city from the Portland Aerial Tram, which links the South Waterfront to the Oregon Health and Science University. Visit the Wells Fargo History Museum, shop at Pioneer Place, or see a show at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

Portland’s mild weather makes it perfect for roses – you can see them everywhere! The biggest rose garden, however, is the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park – it has more than 10,000 rose bushes of 650 varieties. Blooms run from April through October, peaking in June. Equally beautiful is the Portland Japanese Garden, an oasis of ferns, ponds, waterfalls, and Japanese art and sculpture, and the Lan Su Chinese Garden, a Suzhou-style garden with pagodas and ponds. Near the campus of Reed College, the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is great for strolling – there are fountains, waterfalls, ponds, and 2,500 rhododendron and azalea plants.

Portland has great neighborhoods just right for strolling or grabbing a latte. The Pearl District has art galleries and upscale businesses, while the Northwest District has grand old buildings and tons of restaurants, bars, and shops. Portland practically gave birth to the food truck movement, and you can sample from the best at the Alder Street Food Cart Pod – choose from Korean barbecue, Mexican, and innovative fusions.

Be sure to check out the Oregon Zoo in Washington Park – it’s a world leader in animal welfare and conservation and has hundreds of exotic and rare species to see as well as a breathtaking holiday light display. Hit a rainy day? Spend an afternoon at the excellent Portland Art Museum or see dinosaur skeletons at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

From almost anywhere in town you can see Mt. Hood, a dormant volcano draped in glaciers and dotted with ski resorts. It’s a two-hour drive east from downtown. Ready to hit the beach? Two hours to the west you can find gorgeous sand and craggy bluffs near Cannon Beach.

Pack your bags and start planning – Portland is one of America’s can’t-miss destinations!
