Destination Portland

Downtown-Holiday-Dmitriy-MollaSet against the backdrop of majestic Mount Hood, Portland combines a sophisticated, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a refreshingly friendly, small-town warmth. The city’s compact, walkable downtown offers easy access to great food, green spaces, cultural offerings, and tax-free shopping. Browse the city’s diverse mix of retailers — large and small, international and indie, see a show, and grab a bite. From food carts to fine dining, you’re usually just steps away from great food in downtown — nearly all emphasizing local, seasonal ingredients.

Portland makes the most of long, sunny days and pleasant evenings, too, pulling out all the stops with festivals celebrating craft beer, music, contemporary art, and the city’s internationally acclaimed culinary scene.

Come early or stay late to enjoy all that Portland has to offer. An award-winning airport, efficient light rail system, and pedestrian-friendly blocks in the central city make getting around town a real pleasure. Learn more and start planning your visit at
