Come to Portland

You’ve heard the buzz about Portland, Oregon. Maybe you’ve even seen the TV show. Portland can be quirky, but it’s also high-tech, hardworking and historic. We’re a port city with the nation’s #1 airport, just two hours from ski areas and the Oregon coast and less than four hours from Seattle.

Portland has a vibrant arts scene, world-class food and drink and friendly people in a beautiful natural setting. It’s bicycle-friendly, dog-friendly and one of the West Coast’s most affordable cities. We’re a leader in public transportation, with MAX light rail, the Portland Streetcar, the Portland Aerial Tram connecting two OHSU campuses and the TriMet bus system.
