About Portland and Oregon
Located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and bisected by the Willamette River, Portland is a vibrant city nestled among green woods and waterways. Only 90 minutes from the spectacular Oregon coast or towering Mount Hood, Portland offers the rare accessibility of snow-to-surf. Portland embraces cyclists, hikers, brewpubs, dogs, climbers, artisan coffee shops, book readers, foodies, professional soccer and basketball fans, award-winning wineries, concertgoers and paddle boarders. There’s something here for everyone. All without sales tax and in a mild climate. It’s no wonder Portland constantly ranks as one of America’s favorite lifestyle cities.
