With big city vibe, vast variety for the pickiest coffee and craft beer connoisseurs and strong emphasis on green living, Portland is a thriving culture that embraces all things Northwest. Being located near the end of the Oregon Trail, Portland’s sense of established community paired with equal portions of respect, gratitude, and adventure make this city a must-see historical landmark. On any given morning, you can find neighborhood cafes serving gourmet fare to loyal patrons, while others bike by on their way home from the farmers market toting fresh produce and flowers. Downtown Portland bustles with business people in suits, road bikers in spandex, and everything in between while modern skyscrapers are neighbors to small local shops in Victorian style houses, community parks and food carts. The blend of cultures and architecture are what make Portland unique, and those that call the “City of Roses” home embrace the diversity with fervor.
