Portland

Wonderfully weird Portland, OR. A self-proclaimed "weird" city—and committed to keeping it that way— Portland does things a little differently. And these quirks are what give the city its eclectic charm. Locals are passionate about the arts, the environment, locally sourced foods, microbrews, green spaces, music and bicycle transportation, to name just a few of the things visitors will enjoy during a visit to Portland.
