Portland took on the nickname Stumptown in the mid-1800s because it was growing so fast that tree stumps pixeled the landscape. Today, it’s a popular, trendy city, home to over 600,000 people – more than 2 million including the metro area. It’s a Forbes pick for Best Places for Business and Careers and fourth in Top 20 Healthiest Cities. 

With Vancouver – and Canada – just across the Columbia River, and the Willamette River dividing the city, Portland is a town for those who thrive by water and live to go outside. Biking and hiking are part of the culture. The city provides online maps to help plan routes, and a bike share program is slated for 2016. With a mild coastal climate where temperatures rarely reach freezing or top 90, the area is full of scenic beauty, from Washington Park and its International Rose Test Garden, zoo and museums to a full range of gardens and arboretums. The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area on the Oregon-Washington border has waterfalls, hiking trails and locks, and Mount Hood, offering hiking and skiing, is nearby. The city also has a children’s museum, Waterfront Park, Powell’s City of Books, the Portland Saturday Market, and numerous plazas and landmarks. Too, don’t forget its amazing food, gourmet coffee, and craft breweries and distilleries.
