Say hello to Portland, one of America’s most vibrant cities and a city that’s blessed with a surrounding countryside brimming with natural beauty and packed with an amazing array of year round outdoor recreational pursuits – from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to hiking, biking, fishing and white-water rafting in the summer, there really is something for everyone in the Portland Region, Oregon’s largest and most exciting city destination.

Affectionately referred to as  “City of Roses” Portland is famous for many things including an amazing culinary scene, the welcoming locals, an amazing public transportation system that includes cycle friendly streets, historic monuments and museums, a lively arts and culture scene and much more – all surrounded by some spectacular countryside and wilderness just waiting to be explored.

In Oregon City, the end of the Oregon Trail, marvel at Willamette Falls, the second largest waterfall by volume in the U.S. after Niagara Falls.

Mt. Hood Territory also has many passionate vintners and winemakers, sustainable farmers, craft brewers, and all-star chefs who bring their farms to your fork for an authentic slice of Americana.
