About Portland

With the lowest cost-of-living on the U.S. West Coast, Portland is not an expensive city.  There is no sales tax in Oregon, while most other states have a 7-8% sales tax.

Portland is a safe, very clean and beautiful city. You can feel safe in Portland downtown and neighborhoods night and day. Portlanders are friendly and helpful. Even though Portland has 2.2 million people living in it–and has all the benefits and amenities of a big city–it has a friendly, small town feel. Portland has one of the best bus and city-train systems in America. Portland is also the most bicycle friendly city in America. You do not need a car to enjoy exploring Portland!

Portland is famous for its food carts! Every neighborhood in Portland has its own “food cart center”, offering food from around the world. Many food carts are open all day, so you can get breakfast, lunch or dinner any day of the week. There are so many food carts in Portland, there is even a smartphone app for them!

Portland offers a great variety of cultural and art festivals, music concerts, races of all kinds.

Every month, there is something new to do, with chocolate tastings, Christmas performances, zombie walks, and silly races.

There are so many places to visit in Oregon!
