Portland Oregon located in the Pacific Northwest is experiencing a boom in its tourist industry. Recent statistics show that some eight million visitors make their way to the city each year.

Motorists will find the city on I-5 between Seattle (to the north) and San Francisco (to the south), as well as at the western terminus of I-84, which offers passage to Salt Lake City, Utah. Those visitors looking to arrive by air should make their way to Portland International Airport (PDX), which offers connections to much of the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as select destinations in Europe. The airport is located about 10 miles from downtown Portland, with regular and reliable public transport links connecting the two. portland oregonKnown as the “Rose City”, Portland is famed for its picturesque gardens, parks and green spaces, of which there are many.
