If that means a great walking city with tons of public transport, an atmosphere that celebrates the arts, a culture of great food, artisan coffee, craft beer, wine and neighborhoods chock full of shops with handmade clothes and crafts, then we’d have to agree. As fantastic as Portland is to spend time in, it’s one of the easiest cities to spend time outside. The mountains, waterfalls, wine country and other assorted outdoor goodies Oregon is famous for are all a short drive away. So whether you’re looking to spend time in or outside a great city, Portland’s it. Enquire Now First name * Last name * Email address * Confirm Email Address * Phone number * How can we help?
