The attractions of Portland, and Oregon are inspiring to travelers from all over the world. From world-class shopping to jaw-dropping natural sights, this city is sure to amaze anyone who visits. The city's nearly 600,000 residents are a welcoming bunch, and their inherent quirkiness is refreshing and of interest at all times.
The Wild (North) West
Portlanders love visiting the abundance of natural escapes that are just minutes from downtown. A favorite of many is Multnomah Falls. Located just a short drive beyond downtown, the falls are a 611 foot swell of icy glacial waters. Unlike many glacier waterfalls, Multnomah is a year-round attraction, making anytime a good time to visit this magnificent roaring sight! If you're a big fan of hiking, taking a trip to Mt. Hood is a must. Fans of classic horror movies will recognize Hood's Timberline Lodge to be the same one featured in "The Shining." However, you don't have to worry about ghosts if you decide to stay a night in Mt. Hood - there’s never been a sighting.
Shop ‘Til you Drop
Oregon has the distinction of being one of a handful of states without sales tax. With Portland having so many great stores, there are plenty of reasons to spend time in Portland doing some retail therapy. Some of the largest chain retailers like Nordstrom and Macy's have a presence in the city. You also have the option to head over to the Pearl District, to check out a number of smaller boutiques. From stylish caps to one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for a special person in your life, you are sure to find that perfect something here.
Grab a Cup or Two
The City of Roses is also home to one of the Pacific Northwest's most beloved coffee roasters: Stumptown. Steer your Portland car rental in the direction of Southeast Division Street to visit Stumptown's flagship location. Prepare to be amazed at the slow roasting, and carefully-prepared espresso you receive. Don't be surprised if you end up ordering a second latte. Or more!
