Lying between the Columbia and Willamette rivers, and in the shadow of majestic Mount Hood, Portland is the eclectic jewel of the Pacific Northwest. Ranked “#10 Top City” in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2017 list and as one of the “Best Cities in the U.S.” by Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” survey in 2016, the vibrant city filled with architecturally distinct bridges brims with distilleries, bike paths, coffeehouses and a thriving art and music scene.
Get lost inside Powell’s Books, the largest independent bookstore in the world that takes up an entire city block or stroll among the vine maples in the Japanese Garden, one of the largest of its kind outside Japan. The iconic Washington Park is full of activity, and encompasses the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Children’s Museum and the International Rose Test Garden, among countless other treasures.
