Welcome to Portland, Oregon, lovingly known as both “Stumptown” and “The Rose City”
Ever since the flower bloomed into local popularity over one hundred years ago. In recent times, this town has become known as a foodie’s paradise, a hotspot for music and the arts, and an all-around cultural treasure. This perfectly complements the natural Northwest beauty, which has always been nestled within, watched over by the ever-present Mount Hood.
Just under 700,000 people have made Portland their home with the greater metropolitan area ballooning to 2.4 million – or about sixty percent of the population of the entire state. There is no end of diversions in this charming and vibrant city. Some of the best neighborhoods to check out include Nob Hill, Division, Chinatown, the Pearl District, the Alberta Arts District and Downtown. Iconic parks deserving of a visit include the immense Forest Park, the concert-friendly Tabor Park and the food and drink magnet which is the Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
