Portland's water creates a city of dramatic contrasts. The land has produced forests and farms where loggers and farmers cultivate what grows from the earth. Keeping the city livable for its residents and not extending urban growth are two main objectives of Portlanders. Maintaining forest, farm and green space is of utmost importance. The city is civilized with an impressively clean downtown, stellar public transportation and a vibrant and attractive waterfront.
A visit to the city of Portland would not be complete without leaving the city to see the sights of the outlying areas. A journey along the Columbia River offers breathtaking views of the Columbia River Gorge.
Portland — “Portland is widely considered one of the nation’s leaders in public transit,” the U.S. News & World Report list says. I’m not sure if they picked Portland based on instinct, but it’s a good choice. For its size Portland has a large number of options for public transportation. Plus, we have an aerial tram — not all that efficient, but seriously cool!
Park Lane Suites and Inn is located on the edge of Portland's city center. 1.0 miles
