​Portland Holidays​

The 'City of Roses' to some,' Beervana' to others, hip and happening Portland has something for everyone and, with its laid-back attitude, provides the warmest of welcomes. This is a city where casual is the rule of thumb, and some of the finest gardens in the land, as well as great museums and culture, sit side-by-side with local microbreweries, music festivals and fashionable food 'carts'.

All this take place against the backdrop of some stunning scenery, and the dazzling snow-capped cone of Mount Hood looms large over the city. West of Downtown, Forest Park has over 80 miles of walking and bike trails through tranquil evergreens, making it the biggest urban forest in the States. And you mustn't miss the fabulous gardens which thrive in Portland's mild climate: take your pick from roses, formal Japanese style, or Chinese.

Outside Portland, there's a wealth of other sights to see, with the rugged Oregon coast only 90 minutes away, including Cannon Beach with iconic Haystack Rock rising 72 metres from its wide stretch of sand. Closer still is wine country, with the rolling landscapes of the Willamette Valley waiting to be explored; also the stunning chasms and waterfalls of the Colombia River Gorge, where watersports and river cruises are part of the fun.

Back in the city, there's museums you'll want to discover, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMNI) will keep the kids fascinated for hours, while art fans will lap up the impressive collection at the Museum of Art. There's lovely neighbourhoods to discover too, complete with trendy galleries and boutiques, and great farm-to-fork cuisine in the local eateries. Then you can round off the day with a cool craft beer or a local wine. What could be nicer?.

Glorious Gardens

Rose Test GardenOver 550 rose varieties and 7,000 bushes flourish at the Rose Test Garden in Washington Park. With sweeping views across the city too, it makes for a spectacular sight. Equally stunning is the formal Japanese Garden, said to be the most beautiful outside that country, with a tea house and carp ponds. And the Chinese Garden is a tranquil oasis of courtyards, pavilions and bridges.

Beautiful Beer

Portland has taken craft beers to its heart. The first micro breweries started up in the 1980s and now there are over 50 of them, serving up everything from organic to sour and fruit-flavoured brews. At the HUB Bike Bar, you can even tune in to the city's green vibe by cycling while you sup - and generating electricity!

 

Multnomah Falls

Just 30 miles from Downtown, Oregon's tallest waterfall plunges 189 metres down the rockface of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in two magnificent drops. It cascades with water all year round and you can make the quarter-mile hike up to scenic Benson Bridge, which spans the second drop - or continue all the way to the top for even more breathtaking views.

Shop Around

There's plenty of places to shop, and the beauty of it all is that it's tax free. Downtown has all the major brands and department stores; Pearl District has art galleries, funky boutiques and the largest independent bookshop in America, Powell's City of Books; and don't miss the week-end Saturday Market for artisan arts, crafts and clothes.

Festivals

There's a swathe of festivals on Portland holidays. 2014 is as crowded as ever. The ever-popular Beerfest happens 8-10 August; the Jazz Festival is 20 February-2 March; May's Rose Festival culminates in the Grand Floral Parade on 7 June; the Waterfront Blues Festival fills the summer nights from 3-6 July, with fireworks on the Fourth; and there are many more.
