Oregon’s largest city is about ten miles south of the airport, on the south bank of the Columbia River, and serves as the state border with Washington. The city has acquired a bohemian reputation thanks to a wide range of green initiatives. Portland is particularly known for the popularity of cycling - the Rodwell Trail and the Jurassic Cycle Trails are the perfect place to head to if you're a biking fan.
With the tagline "Keep Portland Weird", you'll find a host of bizarre attractions within the city, all offering visitors something unique and different. The ‘Freakybuttrue Peculiarium and Museum’ is home to a wide range of peculiar exhibits, including Al Capone's safe, whereas The Hat Museum will give you an insight deep into the history of the humble headpiece.
From the centre of Portland you’ll probably be able spot the cone of Mount Hood rising over the horizon. It’s just a 50 mile drive east to find this 11,249ft volcano, with its snow-capped summit poking up from the Cascade mountain range.
You’ll find more accessible forests and foothills closer to the city, and you’ll be able to reach some spectacular hiking and biking trails. Explore Forest Park, with more than 70 miles of trails, or spend an afternoon in the tranquillity of Washington Park, with a huge rose garden and 15 miles of footpaths. Look out for cherry orchards in all directions, especially during the spring blossom season, as they will create an enchanting feel to the trip. Cherries are a local delicacy, with the state producing some of the finest seasonal products across the USA.
The famous city of Salem, can be found among the leafy hills to the south of Portland. You’ll find the most striking landmark is the State Capitol building, which is a distinctive art deco structure. It was built of white marble in 1938 and is topped by a gold-plated bronze statue of an early pioneer.
The city serves as a cultural capital to the state too, so look out for the diverse collection displayed in the Hallie Ford Museum of Art alongside the Capitol. Take a trip to the Willamette Heritage Centre to see a collection of old buildings relocated on the site of an old mill, but today has become a memorable five-acre outdoor museum.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
