Portland is set against the backdrop of magnificent Mount Hood, and lies south of Washington state line on Willamette River, close to its junction with Columbia River, 100 miles by river east of the Pacific. It is a deepwater port that is capable of taking oceangoing vessels and yet it's also a city of natural splendour not far from ocean, desert and mountains. Outside the city, places to visit include the 259-metre (850-foot) Multnomah Falls in Columbia River Gorge, Bonneville Dam and Mt.Hood National Forest. Mount Saint Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Adams in WA can also be visited from Portland.
Famous as the City of Roses, Portland has some splendid public gardens. In June there is a Rose Festival with boat and car races, visiting navy ships and grand parade. The city is filled with late-19th-century and contemporary architecture as well as museums and mansions to visit. Many 1860s brick buildings featuring cast-iron columns and 1890s ornate terra-cotta designs have been preserved in areas, such as Yamhill, Skidmore Old Town, and Glazed Terra-Cotta national historic districts. There is also the Chinatown Gate, for the more exotic, recognizable by its 5 roofs, 64 dragons, and 2 huge lions, official entrance to Chinatown District.
Highlights: City of Roses, Multnomah Falls, Mt. Hood National Forest
