This post is all about what to do in Portland Oregon for first-timers!
Located along the Willamette and Columbia rivers, Portland is fast becoming the place to go. Interestingly, named by a toss of a coin, Portland is also called the City of Roses.
It offers visitors a rich and vibrant culinary and art scene, balanced with a wide range of outdoor activities, as well as an eclectic nightlife that will please any night owl.
Stumptown is Portland’s oldest and first nickname. The locals began calling it such because of the various stumps trees left after they were cut down to make room for the rapid urban growth that was taking place.
Today the place has no stumps and is more about its well-established tradition of the annual World Naked Bike Ride, as well as plenty of other things that will please culinary, culture and art connoisseurs, and people who just want to have a little escape from their busy lives.
