  • Forecasting Your Portland Vacation

    Portland is one of the greenest cities in the U.S. thanks to the 43 inches of rainfall it receives annually, which is surprisingly only slightly higher than the U.S. rainfall average. May through September are warm and mild, making it a perfect time to visit and take advantage of all the festivals and outdoor recreation opportunities. If you visit from October through March, you’re likely to encounter some rain, but it’s a great time to visit museums, galleries, coffee shops, and brewpubs.
