Portland is Oregon’s largest city. It is located on the Columbia and Willamette rivers. This city is known for its appreciation of nature and the sustainability of the environment which can be seen in the numerous parks and bicycle paths that locals and guests alike frequent. Eco-friendliness, coffeehouses, bookstores, a thriving art, theater and music scene plus the quirkiness of its residents are what make Portland such a fun destination to visit.

Portland hosts many events throughout the year including its best known, the Rose Festival.
