Pacific Northwest Travel Destinations

Northwest,Portland,Oregon

Portland, Oregon


Portland has a lot of unofficial designations among American cities. It's considered to be the greenest and most bike-friendly of the major urban areas. Portland is also a hotbed for culture, the arts, and dining. Its unique Mediterranean climate makes it the perfect place to grow roses, which is why the city hosts a Rose Festival each year. Kids will love the Discovery Museum at the World Forestry Center, which encourages active learning, and features tours through simulated forest zones from around the world.
