Portland is one of the greenest cities around; it promotes environmental friendliness through the use of public transportation and the protection of over 8,000 acres of land from development. This being said Portland has many parks and green spaces available for recreation. They have both the smallest park in the world, Mill Ends Park, and the largest wilderness park within city limits in the nation, Forest Park. Also, Portland is known as The City of Roses and is home of the International Rose Test Garden. Portland’s warm, dry summers and rainy temperate winters make it ideal for growing roses.

Portland has been entertaining its residents for decades, so if you are looking to be entertained look no further than down the street from your new home. Arts are a large part of Portland’s scene. Portland has several large galleries and features performing arts similar to New York’s Off Broadway, such as Portland Center Stage.

Beer and Coffee are both large parts of a Portlander’s life. Portland is also known as Beertown and has more breweries than any other city in the United States; the city attributes its quality beer to the pure water from the Bull Run Watershed, two-row barley and the numerous varieties of hops grown in the area. Coffee is another staple of Portland life; Stumptown Coffee Roasters is a Portland original and is known as the country’s highest quality direct-trade roaster.
