Portland is known as "Beervana" Excellent locally brewed beer is on tap everywhere
THINGS TO DO Whatever your interests, Portland satisfies. Cycling & hiking are said to be among the best in the country. Wine and beer are tops in their glass. Produce, meat, wine, beer and cheese are locally grown and in demand by gourmets around the world. Culture and sports are always newsworthy. That's why I think, you're really going to love the "Rose City."
"So many options. So little time." Cliché? Perhaps elsewhere. But not in Portland. Therein lies the dilemma. The Portland area is filled with so many things to do it's impossible to cover them all here. But cover them we must. Before our Gran Depart, Nancy Broadhag will supply you with a comprehensive list of local activities and restaurants. Remember, most of her "suggestions" are recommendations given by others and they have not been personally experienced. If you know the area and have a favorite Portland Place, share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too.
