If there is one thing that we value in this part of the world, it’s nature. Throughout our history this community has prized the outdoors, and that’s evident in the sheer number of parks you’ll find here. Some say that we’re the only urban area that has more park space than parking spaces. From vast nature reserves to quaint community parks, you’ll find that here the outdoors is in no short supply!

Local Attractions

Aside from the natural splendor, there are may features of our community that help make it so unique. From our hip artistic district to our history of fine craft brewing, the Portland/Vancouver scene will find a way to suprise you.

The Pearl District
One of the most unique areas in Portland is the Pearl District, just a short walk from downtown.

One of the first things visitors to Portland are likely to notice is the number of brewpubs scattered throughout the city. Portland has more brewpubs per capita than any other city in North America, helping the city earn a reputation as the unofficial beer capital of the world.

Powell's Books
No longer a Portland secret, Powell's has earned a reputation as a book lover's paradise. The flagship store, Powell's City of Books, occupies three floors of an entire city block.
