Portland overview

Often referred to as the ‘City of Roses’, Portland’s gardens have become one of its main attractions. But beyond its greenery, its setting among coastal mountains, its mild climate, impressive arts scene and lively nightlife lure visitors from all over to book flights to Portland. 

Lovers of the great outdoors can spend their holiday hiking the trails of Forest Park and taking long walks in the Japanese Garden. The climate is so mild and rainfall so plentiful that Portland is a paradise for gardeners. Semi-tropical plants like camellias thrive, as do 400 varieties of roses. And while much of the rest of North America is still shovelling snow, spring comes to Portland early.

Visitors who come off a flight to Portland when it’s raining shouldn’t be disappointed, there’s plenty to do indoors from visiting art museums to exploring the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry or just hanging out at the enormous Powell’s bookstore. There are several local theatre companies, a symphony orchestra, chamber music group, and opera company. In addition, Portland has so many microbreweries and brewpubs; it’s been called “Munich on the Willamette”.

The Pearl District in particular, has been hailed as the ultimate capital of hipsterdom, where you can soak in all the healthy eats and craft beer that you can handle.
