Set against the backdrop of majestic Mount Hood, Portland combines a sophisticated, cosmopolitan atmosphere with national accolades for its cuisine, a vibrant arts scene, great theatres and funky tax-free shopping districts inspired by the creative spirit of the city.
The Willamette Valley is the heart of Oregon's agricultural country. Besides fruits, nuts and vegetables, farms in the valley grow everything from Christmas trees to flowers. During growing seasons roadside stands dot picturesque country lanes, and farmer's markets appear in the valley's historic towns. A burgeoning wine industry is gaining prestige for its vigour and for Oregon's top varietal: Pinot noir. The valley's flat terrain and temperate climate make it a favourite for hikers and cyclists, who also enjoy the paved bike paths in the college towns of Eugene and Corvallis.
