Portland has gained a reputation as an eco-friendly city. In stark contrast to many other major American cities, the public transportation system is advanced, and walking and cycling paths abound. A cycling trip along the Willamette River will provide a view of Portland’s signature structures: its bridges, which are many, architecturally varied and have earned the city the nickname of Bridgetown.
The Pioneer Courthouse Square is the public meeting spot in the hub of the relatively small downtown area. From here you can stroll to the neighborhood parks, the Oregon History Museum or visit the Portland Farmers Market. Those who like to keep their finger on the pulse should head northwest of the downtown towards the Pearl district, a former-industrial area now transformed into one of the most vibrant places in town.
Portland is more laid-back than its west-coast cousins and one of the major contributors to its easygoing aura is its abundance of beautiful gardens. The city’s climate is ideal for growing roses and the International Rose Test Garden is the place to appreciate their variety and their aroma. Several other parks call attention for their restful charm, among them Washington Park and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
A wealth of locally grown produce in the neighboring area has led many Portland restaurants to form direct relationships with local farmers. At a farm-to-table restaurant you will get the freshest ingredients available. No less enticing is Portland’s incredible variety of street food, this is a city that values food carts and you won’t have to go far to find one. Additionally, it has one of the world’s liveliest craft beer cultures. Portland’s fresh tastes, aromas and tranquility give the place a character of its own.
