 About Portland

Maybe you've heard that the city of Portland,
Oregon, has been proclaimed as North America's "Best Big City," according to Money magazine. One visit will explain why.  Portland, Oregon Skyline

Set against the backdrop of majestic Mount Hood, Portland combines a sophisticated, cosmopolitan atmosphere with refreshingly friendly, small-town warmth.  Attendees can cruise the city's scenic rivers, stroll through gardens and parks, shop tax-free in a tempting array of stores and boutiques, then wrap up the day with world-class dining and entertainment.

Portland is
a welcoming destination with day trips that delight and a nightlife that bedazzles.  The region’s natural beauty, its bustling local scene, seasonally focused dining and green appeal make it the perfect backdrop for the 2010 DOI Conference on the Environment.


Portland International Airport

Just 20 minutes from downtown, Portland International Airport (PDX) has earned awards for demonstrating that large-scale airports can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Public Transit
Public transportation in Portland is easy-to-use and allows you to explore even the farthest reaches of the Portland metropolitan area while concentrating on enjoying the city - not navigating it.

  • Bus lines and MAX light rail
  • Transit mall
  • Portland Streetcar
  • Downtown on foot


    What to See and Do

    • Drown out the city noise in the Portland Classical Chinese Garden, an entire city block of tranquility.
    • Ride the only three-door elevator west of the Mississippi at Powell's City of Books, the world's largest independent bookstore. Powell's spans a full city block and rises three stories to house its selection of 1 million new, used and out-of-print titles. 
    • Visit the Oregon Zoo, where more Asian elephants have been born than in any other North American city — including baby Samudra, whose birthday was Aug. 23, 2008.
    • Get caught in an earthquake registering 5.5 on the Richter scale at the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry (OMSI).
    • Visit turn-of-the-century Victorian and Georgian homes along the tree-lined blocks of Northwest 21st and 23rd Avenues that have been reincarnated, housing more than 250 unique shops, brewpubs, art outlets and eateries.
    • Learn about the mysterious past and “shanghai tunnels” of the Old Town/Chinatown District. Or experience some of the nightlife that Old Town is best known for today.
    • Catch dramatic city views as you stroll or bike along the Eastbank Esplanade, a pathway along the Willamette River.
