Welcome to Portland

Portland Oregon, the quirky counterculture and progressive Northwest stronghold, has always attracted people. Sited where the Willamette River flows into the mighty Columbia, the area was home to two Native American tribes, making it one of the Pacific Coast’s most densely populated regions even before European settlers arrived on the Oregon Trail in the 1830s. Now Portland attracts people with its offbeat culture, 75 craft breweries, food carts, coffee shops, donuts, parks and gardens, river cruises, and eclectic shopping. Natural wonders near the city include the amazing Columbia River Gorge and its waterfalls, Willamette Valley Wineries, towering Mt. Hood, and the scenic Oregon Coast.
