Welcome to Portland
Portland is a safe, very clean and beautiful city. You can feel safe in Portland downtown and neighborhoods night and day. Portlanders are friendly and helpful. Even though Portland has 2.2 million people living in it–and has all the benefits and amenities of a big city–it has a friendly, small town feel.
Portland, Oregon is a great city with distinct and interesting neighborhoods, full of good restaurants and bars, coffee shops on every corner, locally-made beer pubs, and hundreds of food carts where you can try out food from around the world.
To counteract all those delicious meals, Portlanders love to burn calories in the great outdoors. Hit the pavement with one of many local walking tours, see Portland by bicycle or take a hike in one of the country’s largest urban forests. Within two hours of downtown, you can visit the Oregon Coast beaches, Mount Hood ski resorts or Columbia River Gorge waterfalls. Portland is home to the nation’s favorite airport, an efficient light rail system and pedestrian-friendly city blocks — uncommon qualities that are easy to get used to. Portland has one of the best bus and city-train systems in America. Portland is also the most bicycle friendly city in America. You do not need a car to enjoy living in and exploring Portland!
