There’s no shortage of music either, with a
variety of venues for nearly every neighborhood. The Doug Fir Lounge is a nationally
recognized spot for catching big-name indie
acts and smaller, locals bands with a
log-cabin-of-the-future style decor. The
artsy crowd will surely be busy in Portland,
but we don’t forget the sports fans either.
While Portland is missing a few of the
major leagues like baseball and football,
the teams we do have are supported with
passionate dedication. Soccer has risen in
popularity here, faster than most American cities, and our Timbers Army is one of
the most rambunctious fan sections you’ll
find, and with good reason. Our Portland
Timbers are the 2015 MLS Cup Champions. We also love our basketball, cheering
on the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland’s
dedication to the Trail Blazers was made
official in 1995 when the city set the record
for consecutive sold out home games.
DINING AND SHOPPING
Portlanders like their food and drink locally
sourced and artfully prepared, supporting
one of the most impressive craft movements
in the country. Rising-star chefs and foodies
all make their way here, and the city has
developed a reputation for particular palates
regarding quality and creativity.
Portland boasts a bountiful harvest, year-round,
thanks to our temperate climate and steady
rainfall, making it merely common sense to
enjoy all that is local on our plates. Top-rated
restaurants like Le Pigeon, Beast, Ox, and Ned
Ludd all pride themselves on creative executions with sustainable ingredients. You’ll also
find impressive diversity with international
menus, particularly when it comes to Asian
and Mediterranean fare.
Great food and great beer go hand-in-hand in Portland — affectionately dubbed
“Beervana” by the craft beer enthusiasts. Portland boasts more craft brewers
per capita than any other place on Earth.
Bridgeport Brewing, Widmer Brothers
Brewing, McMenamins, Full Sail Brewing
Co., and Deschutes Brewery are all
pioneers in the craft brewing scene, and
they all call Oregon home.
Shopping in Portland is a great way to burn
off those inevitable calories you’ve racked
up while enjoying all the great food and
drink. Portland offers a diverse range of retail
options, from high-end, well-known chains,
to the locally-made and bizarre. Downtown
Portland has an array of big names likes Nordstrom, Apple, and Louis Vuitton, and it’s easy
to hit them all in the one-square mile of small,
city blocks. The Pearl, just a few blocks northwest of Downtown Portland offers boutique
shopping, as well as favorites like Anthropol-ogie, Title Nine, and Patagonia.
The Portland Saturday Market is the place
to buy hand-made souvenirs and trinkets, every Saturday and Sunday along
the downtown waterfront. It’s the largest
arts and crafts fair in the United States, so
you’re sure to find something unique.
Once upon a time, Portland was a lumber
town. When the city was developed, the
stumps of the abundant trees that had to
be cleared were left in the city, and people
would jump from stump to stump when it
