Portland Oregon, "The City of Roses."
Portland, Oregon, is the state's largest city, and among the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. Yet this Pacific Northwest burgh near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers has not morphed into a megalopolis. Rather, it has become known for strong land-use planning, light rail, the arts, culinary excellence, microbreweries and fine wine.
Portland's cuisine spans the ethnic spectrum, but the city is best known for regional, farm-to-table foods, with an emphasis on sustainable produce and fresh fish and meats, paired with locally produced wine and beer for a range of budgets. Portland also is a hub for microbreweries and brew pubs, where visitors can enjoy locally crafted beer with their meals. Besides hip bistros, fine dining and casual spots, Portland offers several culinary festivals, including the Oregon Seafood and Wine Festival in February, the Oregon Brewers Festival in July and Bite of Oregon in August.
The arts scene is alive and well in Portland, with more than 150 galleries and lots of museums, like the Portland Art Museum and the one-of-a-kind 3-D Center of Art and Photography, as well as monthly art walks in the Pearl and Aberta Districts. Among other cultural attractions in Portland are the Oregon History Museum, with exhibits on topics like the Oregon Trail and Native culture; the interactive World Forestry Center Discovery Museum, where visitors learn about the sustainability of forests and trees.
Portland International Airport is served by 13 carriers, provides excellent hotels and offers car rentals from major companies. In addition, visitors can take Amtrak to Portland Union Station. Getting around is easy, with the TriMet bus system and the MAX light rail system providing service around the city and the Portland Streetcar providing rides in the downtown and adjacent areas.

The Signatures Group was extremely helpful in securing the appropriate lodging for our daughters destination wedding to Charleston. They took the pressure off me and allowed me to be the mother of the bride and enjoy the fabulous weekend as a guest. A rare treat for me.
