From its manicured green areas to its deliciously assorted food scene, Portland has become a must-see destination of the Pacific Northwest. The city of many nicknames has risen as an urbanite’s dream, with some of the most pedestrian-friendly streets in the country. Many of them are lined with food carts that give Portland some of the best, most affordable, and diverse street food anywhere.
It’s also full of plenty of trails for hiking and biking and access to water sports along the Willamette and Columbia Rivers that border the city. But the most-loved attractions are low-key and elusive: a sip of locally roasted coffee, or maybe a late afternoon spent at a brewery or even a stroll through open art galleries. Your budget opportunities are endless here! Portland is one of the most thriving cities on the West Coast.
