PORTLAND is located near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers. Because of its public transportation networks and efficient land-use planning, Portland has been referred to as one of the most environmentally friendly, or "green", cities in the world. For more than a century, Portland has been known as the "City of Roses", with many rose gardens – most prominently the International Rose Test Garden. The city is also known for its abundant outdoor activities, liberal political values, and beer and coffee enthusiasm. Portland is home to a collection of independent microbreweries, micro-distilleries and food carts that contribute to the unofficial but widely utilized slogan "Keep Portland Weird". Come early or stay longer to really explore this amazing area. Check out local and area attractions here.
