Portland is an eclectic city, filled with artists and activists and one of the best public transportation systems in the country. Rose gardens, vinyl, microbrews and coffee are all done to perfection, not to mention the city is one of the 'greenest' in the nation. (Double meaning there; besides being environmentally friendly, marijuana is also legal in Oregon.) Portland has recently earned a national reputation for its restaurant scene, complemented by its placement at the intersection of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers -- near countless wineries and organic farms. Get outdoors at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, popular with bikers, joggers, and lovers of unique, often odd sculptures. On the south side of the city, Washington Park and ... Read more
the International Rose Test Garden are great places to relax and get reunited with nature. A thoroughly indie, DIY culture incubates bands like the Decemberists and novelists like Chuck Palahniuk. IFC (Independent Film Channel) is now in the act, with a show called Portlandia, about living in the nation's most idealistic eco-hip city. Go see what everyone is raving about and come to Portland.
The weather is ideal for experiencing Portland’s unique outdoorsy culture from April through October. June through August, in particular, draw the most crowds, but this is really when the city is at its best. Flowers (most notably the roses) are in full bloom, the markets all move outside, and there are festivals galore celebrating everything from blues to brews. If you do come at this time, be sure to book in advance.

A hipster a millennial's dream city, but there is also so much more. From great outdoor activities, delicious food and plenty of quirky art to satisfy any taste, Portland is a city of variety.

Portland is truly an amazing little city. It has a small town feel with a lot of real estate - tons of delicious food, craft breweries, excellent coffee, and plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities around the city. But if hiking isn't your thing, you could spend days on end just eating your way through Portland. Oh, and Powell's Books could (should) take up at least one full day of your time here.

I love the feel and vibe of Portland, especially the areas we were in...downtown, the Alberta Arts district, and the area around Mt.Tabor Park and Division Street. They have a sense of cultural and societal awareness that you don't find in a lot of other cities. What I don't like is that the highways around downtown always seemed to be congested and backed up, sometimes for miles.

About a nine minute drive from Gladstone. Many waterfront stores and biking trails. Watch a famous play in Arlene Schnitzer Hall. Stop by the legendary Voodoo doughnuts and pick up a few. Enjoy Sushi or seafood in one of our many fantastic Grills. Portland is well known for it's Micro Brews which offers many different selections to chose from. The Beauty of the lights and bridges of Portland at night can be breathtaking.

From the moment I first stepped off the plane, for me, Portland felt like home. The city is youthful, progressive and forward thinking. It's edgy like Brooklyn, yet West Coast laid back. People are open minded and kind. People here are trying to create new ways of living and relating to each other and the planet. I've heard from many that Portland would be the perfect city if it just weren't for the crappy weather most of the year. It may not be much of a tourist destination, but it seems to be a very livable city! One of the best things to come to Portland for is the food! There are several culinary schools here so pretty much everything I ate tasted amazing! It's also a vegetarian paradise! One of the easiest places to keep a veggie diet or any particular diet for that matter vegan, gluten free, etc. It's very much a health and wellness kind of place. And probably overall the most affordable of all the major west coast cities.

They say if you live in artsy Portland, you need a bike, a dog, or a tattoo; if you have all three, you’re the epitome of cool. I think there’s an unspoken quality on that list: must enjoy food and drink. (And for men, also a beard. And maybe a manbun.) Hippie. Hipster. Eco-friendly. Progressive. Rain (that's really mostly a drizzle or a mist). Whatever word you associate P-Town/Stumptown/Bridgetown with, I'm up for a foodcation here any long weekend.

Went here for a baby moon vacation and loved the city. Always knew portland was big on micro breweries but didn't know what a foodie heaven it is!! From donuts to ice cream to thai... Truly some of the best food I've had anywhere. You must eat at Paley's! Also loved how easy it was to get around via public transit. And there are so many different neighborhoods all with their own vibe to explore.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Portland. My lady & I had a blast visiting Portland for the first time & it did not disappoint. Lots of eateries & it seems like Thai food is quite popular, moreso than Mexican food (CA). The food scene in Portland is quite vibrant & we'd definitely visit Portland again.

Portland is one of my favorite cities of all time. Seriously so beautiful. Traffic and parking car be rough for first time visitors however convenient car lots allow for all day parking for about 17$ if you plan on walking the city all day, which would be my recommendation to truly experience what this beautiful city has to offer
