Visiting Portland

Nestled in the shadow of Mount Hood, Portland’s temperate climate means there’s never a bad time to visit! So, pack your galoshes and get ready to explore the City of Roses just as it’s starting to bloom. With 70 miles of hiking trails within Portland city limits, the world’s largest independent bookstore, a dozen scenic bridges crossing the Willamette River, nearly 300 luscious gardens and parks (including the world’s smallest park!), tax-free shopping, more breweries than any other city on earth, and wine country in its backyard, Portland has more than a little something for everyone.

After a tough year for the restaurant industry, Portland was selected as the host city of Bravo’s “Top Chef” Season 18, highlighting the city as a food- and nature-lover’s paradise. March is also Portland Dining Month—where over 100 restaurants offer decadent three-course meals for just $33—making it a perfect time to experience one of the country’s most talked-about culinary destinations.

Travelers named Portland International Airport (PDX) the best airport in the United States in Travel + Leisure’s survey every year from 2013–2019. PDX offers nonstop flights to 60 U.S. cities and is conveniently connected to Portland’s city center (only 9 miles away!) via MAX light-rail train. Once you arrive, efficient public transit—including light rail, bus, and streetcar services, miles of bike lanes, and pedestrian-friendly city streets make navigating Portland a breeze.
