Oregon
Portland and Vicinity Region

Portland's attractiveness as a premier destination spot includes the rich diversity of its outlying districts. Surrounding the downtown area is a composite of small, intriguing cities and neighborhoods, each with its own unique flavor and historical relevance. Exploring the surrounding environs can offer hours, if not days of enjoyment, especially for visitors who enjoy delving into the history and cultural diversity of the Northwest.

The town of Beaverton, eight miles southwest of Portland on Highway 217, is home to more than 90 different parks, bike and hiking trails, including the Progress Downs Municipal 18-hole golf course.

Milwaukie, known as the "City of Dogwoods," is nestled between the city of Portland and historic Oregon City at the junction of Highways 99E and 224. Recreational opportunities include whitewater kayaking, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking. The popular Milwaukie River Fest features Dragon Boat races, live music and Independence Day celebrations. An authentic World War II B17G bomber gives tribute to the men and women who served in WWII.

Oregon City was once the territorial capital of Oregon. The Clackamas County Historical Society Museum, Stevens-Crawford Museum and the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center all highlight the courageous life of early 19th-century pioneers.

Lake Oswego, located 10 miles south of Portland on the west bank of the Willamette River, can be reached by trolley from Portland. The town offers a walking tour of well-preserved Gothic, Craftsman, Vernacular, English Cottage and Colonial Revival architecture.

Gresham, known as the "City of Music," marking the northwest outskirts of Portland, is home to the world famous Mt. Hood Jazz Festival. Gresham's proximity to the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood National Forest provides excellent opportunities for numerous outdoor activities, such as wind surfing, camping, biking and cross-country skiing.
