Portland serves as the center of Oregon’s culture and education, as well as the hub of commerce. Most of the state’s major cultural institutions call Portland home, including the opera, symphony, and many outstanding museums. Portland offers the best of both worlds – the friendly personality of a small community and the activities and interest of a large city.
Set against the backdrop of majestic Mount Hood, and divided by the Willamette River, the region offers year round activities. One can enjoy beautiful flower gardens, or cruise scenic rivers, sample exquisite vintages at a local winery, and enjoy tax-free shopping at the many stores and boutiques.
Portland is a very livable city with a mild climate; spring comes early and fall comes late, and the gentle rains keep the area clean and lush. Taking in the scenery is easy and delightful; light rails move commuters and visitors throughout the town. Years of careful urban management have made Portland a city planner’s dream.
