Stop and Smell the Roses
Portland is more laid-back than its west-coast cousins and one of the major contributors to its easygoing aura is its abundance of beautiful gardens. The city’s climate is ideal for growing roses and the International Rose Test Garden is the place to appreciate their variety and their aroma. Several other parks call attention for their restful charm, among them Washington Park and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
A wealth of locally grown produce in the neighboring area has led many Portland restaurants to form direct relationships with local farmers. At a farm-to-table restaurant you will get the freshest ingredients available. No less enticing is Portland’s incredible variety of street food, this is a city that values food carts and you won’t have to go far to find one. Additionally, it has one of the world’s liveliest craft beer cultures. Portland’s fresh tastes, aromas and tranquility give the place a character of its own.
