Situated in the lush Willamette Valley, Oregon’s largest metropolis manages to have a small town feel. A mecca for foodies, coffee enthusiasts, and craft beer connoisseurs, Portland is a fantastic culinary destination. It’s also one of the most eco-friendly cities in the country and boasts over 200 parks, gardens, and wild spaces. Stay with Inspirato minutes from downtown at the city's only waterfront hotel—the contemporary RiverPlace Hotel, named one of Portland’s best by Condé Nast Traveler.
Nestled within the Willamette Valley just 70 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Portland is a medley of small town charm and big city living. With easy access to outdoor activities and a thriving food scene, it’s the perfect place to hit nearby hiking trails and round out the day with farm-to-table fare. Portland’s compact downtown features gardens and greenery not often seen in an urban setting. Take a stroll among 10,000 rose bushes in the International Rose Test Garden or meander through the tranquil oasis of the Portland Japanese Garden. And craft beer enthusiasts should be sure to explore the city’s breweries: The metro area is home to more than 80.
Portland's love of roses comes to life at the International Rose Test Garden, featuring more than 650 varieties. Complimentary tours are offered daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
On the city’s northwest edge, scenic Forest Park spans more than 7 miles, one of the largest urban forests in the U.S. Immerse yourself among the pines without leaving Portland city limits for an ideal afternoon hike.
Portland has recently made a name for itself as a premier culinary destination. The best way to get a taste for the city and explore its different neighborhoods is with a food tour to different eateries.
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.
