Portland is Oregon’s largest city and the western end of the Oregon Trail, the famous cross-country trek that opened America to eastern settlers. In the 18 th century, Portland was a major port. The city is as diverse as its inhabitants, with access to the Pacific Ocean, volcanos, snow-capped Mount Hood and Lewis and Clark National Park.
Known for its laid-back style, Portland is ecologically friendly with many parks to enjoy. Waterfront Park, along the Willamette River, draws joggers and in-line skaters. Jamison Square, with its wading fountain, is an enjoyable children’s playground. Pearl District Park displays innovative modern art for adults. In Chinatown, you can visit Lan Su Chinese Garden, with its garden, bridges and Ming-Dynasty pavilions.
Much of Lewis and Clark’s discoveries can be seen in the lush greenery of Portland’s parks and trails. Capture your visit with your professional photographer in Portland.
