Whether you’re a fan of theater, live music, craft beer, funky foods or being outside, Portland has something for you.  The city has a great vibe for food carts, street festivals, visual and performing art with an array of specialty shops.

  • Home to a sprawling urban forest park with miles of hiking, dozens of verdant public parks and gardens, and the Willamette and Columbia rivers running through the city, there’s never a shortage of ways to explore Portland’s outdoors. Whether you’re a fan of flowers, tranquil gardens, urban hikes or just looking to get some fresh air, Portland has something for every kind of outdoor enthusiast.
