PORTLAND

Whether you refer to it as Rose City, Rip City, Stumptown, Beervana or Bridge City, Portland has something for everyone. A little bit creative, a little bit counter-culture, Portland is a year-round, always-evolving city that's home to a mindful community dedicated to keeping its city sustainable, innovative and accessible. Nearby, you’ll find skiing at Mount Hood, hiking in the Columbia River Gorge and waves at the Oregon Coast, as well as Willamette Valley wine country.

Portland’s six main geographical sections are referred to by residents as the city’s “quadrants.” The city is divided into north and south by Burnside Street and into east and west by the Willamette River. Portland actually has more than 90 formally recognized neighborhoods with distinct boundaries.

Exploring Portland

A LOCAL'S GUIDE

Top Places to Explore in Portland

Become a Local Foodie

In the morning, pop into one of Portland's many coffee shops, such as Coava, Proud Mary, La Perlita or Lion Heart, which brew uniquely-crafted beverages. Ranked one of the best street food cities in the world by CNN in 2018, don’t miss lunch at one of the Portland's food cart pods. I recommend Hawthorne Asylum, Prost Marketplace, the Nob Hill Food Carts and Springwater Cart Park. Go to one of Portland's more than 75 breweries for a refreshing brew; my favorites are Breakside, Ecliptic and Ex Novo. Top it off with something sweet with a stop at one of Portland's donut shops, try the famous Voodoo Doughnut (for the bacon maple) or Blue Star Donuts (for the blueberry bourbon basil), or ice cream shops, try Salt and Straw (for its eccentric seasonal flavors) or Fifty Licks (for its artful, minimalist flavors).

Hike past the Witches Castle to a Victorian-Era Mansion

Head to the Lower Macleay Trailhead for a hike up to Pittock Mansion, a gorgeous mansion built by the founder of the Oregonian. The 5-mile hike winds through Forest Park, following a babbling creek and passing the infamous Witch’s Castle. From the Victorian-era mansion perched on the hill, you have a fantastic view of downtown Portland. On a clear day, you’ll also be able to take in the majesty of Mount Hood’s snowy peak towering over downtown Portland’s skyline. Visitors can tour the mansion daily for a fee. 

Cheer on Portland's beloved sports teams

Known locally as Rip City, Portland is home to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Pacific Northwest's only NBA team. Founded in 1970, the Blazers have always called Portland home — and they have the lifelong fans to prove it. In 1995, the Blazers set the record for most consecutive sellout home games at 814. Catch a home game at the Moda Center or an away game at Spirit of 77, the homegrown sports bar named for the Blazers’ championship year. Portland may not have a NFL football team, but it does have a cherished MLS football team. Portland Timbers (MLS) and Portland Thorns FC (NWSL) games are known for having one of the best atmospheres in the country thanks in large part to the Timber/Thorns Army, a die-hard group of Portland soccer fans. Providence Park, which is where the Timbers and Thorns play, is smack dab in the heart of downtown Portland, making it accessible for locals to walk or bike to games.
