Visiting Metro Portland

Portland marches to its own beat, a lush, beautiful city set in the north of the Willamette Valley and bisected by the Columbia and Willamette rivers. A vibrant cutting-edge urban city, Portland is known for its abundance of green spaces and an ideal balance for an urban outdoor lifestyle.

Portland, Oregon's largest city, has two seasons, rainy and summer. The good news - downpours are rare in the rainy season, which consists mostly of drizzling and misting, and summer weather is perfect. Well know for outstanding public transportation, Portland is also a terrific city for walking and cycling.

Portlanders are active and love their sports teams. The NBA Portland Trail Blazers, one of the favorites, have regular season games scheduled through mid-April. Plan a game night out now before the season ends. The Rose Quarter arena is home court for the Trail Blazers. If you are traveling in for a game or any other event, the Best Western Inn at the Meadows is conveniently located nearby.

PGE Park in downtown Portland is the home stadium for the Portland Timbers and the Beavers. Baseball season is warming up, Beavers home games start mid-April and run through the summer. Start planning your outings to the ballpark now. Professional soccer's Portland Timbers have also officially started the season. Soccer matches make a nice family outing, particularly at PGE park. Originally built in 1926, it's historic grandeur was maintained throughout a careful renovation in 2001.

NASCAR has announced it will be returning to the Portland International Raceway in 2010. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series is on the schedule for mid-July. Gearheads look for the PIR annual Auto Swap April 8th through 11th. This is held in conjunction with the Portland Auto Swap at the Expo Center.

Portland's Saturday Market, Arts & Crafts by the River, opened its 37th season early March. A highlight of the city, the market runs through December, showcasing local and regional artists. The market has grown to include live music and a variety of food booths. Bring the kids out for some fun, look for special events at the kids corner.

The Portland Rose Festival, the official Festival of the city, has been celebrated for over 100 years. One of the world's top Festivals, events celebrate Portland's heritage, culture and environment. Opening day is May 28th, however, the Waterfront Village will open this year for the Memorial Day (May 22-24), adding an additional weekend of fun to the Festival.

From the gorgeous all floral floats of the Grand Parade, the fun of the junior's parade, to the sparkle of the starlight parade, there is entertainment for everyone. The Rose Cup auto races are held June 11-13th at the Portland International Raceway. A staple of the Festival 2010 marks the 50th year of Rose Cup racing. Come out for two nights of Night Drags or your favorite amateur racing event.
