About Portland

Portland, Oregon is located near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia.  Approximately 2,260,000 people live in the Portland
metropolitan area (MSA), the 23rd most populous in the United States.

Portland has been referred to as one of the most environmentally friendly or "green" cities in the world. The city and region are noted for strong land-use planning and investment in light rail. Portland is known for its large number of microbreweries and microdistilleries, as well as its coffee enthusiasm. It is also the home of the Trail Blazers NBA team and the Timbers MLS team.

Portland lies in the Marine west coast climate region, having a climate marked by warm, dry summers and rainy but mild winters. This climate is ideal for growing roses, and for more than a century, Portland has been known as "The City of Roses" with many rose gardens—most prominently the International Rose Test Garden.

The City of Portland

Portland does several things incredibly well – food, booze and inspired, unique (sometimes bizarre) retail. 

Whether you’re looking for your favorite or looking to experiment we have the absolute BEST restaurants!   We focus on local, seasonal and organic but you can get a big fat juicy steak any time of year.  Odds are that steakhouse is next to a vegan restaurant where you can get a tofu scramble with extra sprouts and a gluten free muffin.  Seriously – whatever you want, we’ve got it!

As for booze – we’ll be giving you a great cross section of what Oregon has to offer but we encourage you to strike out on your own for your favorites.  We are all about beer, wine and liquor.  If you manage to get up in the morning we can rock the coffee too.

As for retail, anyone can hit up a department store in any big town.  What Portland has is a million small boutiques and shops that sell all sorts of oddities and unique pieces.

Mt. Hood National Forest

It’s 11, 239 feet, it’s 60 miles of wilderness, it’s 1,067,043 acres of shiggy filled bliss, it’s a mere 20 miles from Portland and it’s damn BEAUTIFUL!

The Oregon Coast

A little over an hour from the city is the amazing Oregon Coast.  Ocean to one side and the gentle Coastal Mountain Range to the other and you will be hard pressed to find a spot that offers more pleasure.  But feel free to search a willing bimbo and you just might find one!

The Columbia River Gorge

Find pleasure in our giant crack!  The Columbia River is the second largest in North America (damn you Mississippi).  It is known for the series of breathtaking waterfalls and crazy people doing crazy things like kite-boarding, rafting, windsurfing, and bird watching (craziest of them all!).
