Life in Portland is way cool – so much to do and see. You name it, it’s here.*

Life in Portland is different than anywhere else in the word – it’s eclectic in the diversity we embrace, it’s electric in the energy and vibe, and it’s elemental in the landscape and seasons.

Portland is nationally recognized for its livability: its bike-friendly streets; public transportation; proximity to hiking, snowboarding and windsurfing; excellent libraries, beautiful parks, and the country’s largest bookstore. But it’s also the food – and its preparation – that has caught the attention of the world’s gourmets.

“With the highest number of restaurants per capita of any city in the US, Portland is home to a veritable food fest offering every kind of cuisine imaginable from ethnic dishes to fine dining. Restaurants are particularly concentrated in central Portland, together with numerous cafés, coffee shops and other popular dining options.” –
