Portland, "the City of Roses", is the largest city in Oregon and the second largest city in the Pacific Northwest after Seattle. It lies about 70 mi (124 km) from the Pacific Coast on the northern border of the state of Oregon, straddling the Willamette River 12 mi (19 km) south of its confluence with the Columbia River. About 50 mi (80 km) to the east lies majestic Mount Hood, which forms the perfect backdrop for Portland's skyline. The city is noted for its scenic beauty, great outdoors environment, a large number of microbreweries, and its eco-friendly urban planning policies.

Portland is the largest city lying between San Francisco and Seattle and when compared to those cities, Portland's environment is not as fast-paced; instead it has a more laid-back, smaller town feel to it that has been created by planning policies. Portland, however, is still a city of 630,00 people with a metropolitan area population of about 2.4 million, and as such has its fair share of cultural amenities, including an impressive music and arts scene and one of the largest collections of zine and independent publishers of any city in the nation. The food, beer, wine and spirits scene among the best on the West Coast and the city has gained a reputation as a beer and food cart capital. There are now more than 70 breweries in the Portland area and over two hundred wineries within an hour drive. The city's development hasn't yet become overwhelming, in large part due to the progressive urban planning culture here. The city boasts the most extensive light-rail and streetcar system in the country. 

The city has a lovely blend of historic and modern architecture and many lush parks to poke your toes into; Forest Park and Washington Park in the hills west of Downtown offer a variety of plants, trails, and wildlife near the city. Vistas of Mt. Hood and the Willamette River, stately Douglas Fir trees, and roses and trees at every turn give the city stunning seasonal color. Environmentally friendly practices, such as recycling and an extensive (though not as well-serviced as it was in the recent past) public transportation system, are part of the culture here and fuel many progressive city planning practices, such as an urban growth boundary, which have made Portland a relatively compact city. Unlike most similar-sized metropolitan areas in the country, you can drive 15 mi (24 km) from downtown and be out in the countryside.
