Welcome to Portland
"Keep Portland Weird" is the unofficial, yet widely used slogan proudly proclaimed by locals describing and promoting the city's eclectic collection of businesses and activities. The city is known for its outdoor activities, liberal political values, and beer and coffee enthusiasm. In Portland, there is something for everyone! Portland is a lot more than just "weird." One of the most environmentally conscience cities in the world; noted for both its efficient land use planning and well scripted transportation systems. And do not forget the more than 8,100 acres of land that have been protected from development! From one of the largest wilderness parks in the United States to the world's smallest park (covering only a 2 foot diameter circle), Portland loves nature! Check out the beautiful, vibrant, and eclectic city of Portland!
