Trendy Portland has something for everyone and with its laid-back attitude it provides the warmest of welcomes.
This is a city where casual is the rule of thumb, and some of the finest gardens in the land, as well as great museums and culture, sit side-by-side with local microbreweries, music festivals and appetising food carts.
All this takes place against the backdrop of some stunning scenery, and the dazzling snow-capped cone of Mount Hood looms large over the city. West of Downtown, Forest Park has over 80 miles of walking and bike trails through tranquil evergreens, making it the biggest urban forest in the States.
Don't miss the fabulous gardens which thrive in Portland's mild climate: take your pick from roses, formal Japanese style, or Chinese. Portland is also a good base to take a tour of Oregon and Washington State by Amtrak – to find out more, please call our personal travel advisors.
