More about Portland
Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon, and is known for its vibrant culture. It possesses dozens of karaoke bars and is known as one of the most exciting music scenes in America.
The city first began to be populated in the 1830s. This was largely due to the fact that it was near the end of the Oregon Trail, and had water access that provided transportation of goods. When the city was first beginning to form, the timber industry played a major role. Over time, the city developed a reputation for counterculture that still continues to this day.
The city is largely known for its music scene, which is one of the most vibrant in the United States. In addition to the many Karaoke bars, the city possesses a range of classical performing arts institutions. This includes the Oregon Symphony, Portland Opera, and the Portland Youth Philharmonic. The city also possesses theatre and performing arts institutions, such as the Oregon Ballet Theatre, and the Portland Center Stage.
Portland is also the site for many major films. For example, the IFC sketch comedy series, Portlandia, was shot on location in Portland.
There are also many outdoor activities to participate in around the city. For example, there’s hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, the Washington Park Loop, and the Mount Tabor Blue Trail, among many, many others.
In addition, the city has several festivals that occur during the year. There’s the Oregon Brewers Festival, which celebrates beer and brewing.
