... to beautiful Portland
and the gorgeous state of
Yes, I am a proud Oregon native who
has had the pleasure and good fortune of
traveling extensively around the U.S. and
abroad. I must admit, however, I’m always excited to
come back home. Oregon is a place of outstanding
beauty and culture, so it’s no wonder visitors want to
experience this treasure first-hand.
There are many opportunities and attractions
to explore within Oregon, and Portland itself.
We at The Portland Guide welcome you and
wish you a truly enjoyable visit!
