The first thing you will notice about the Portland metro area is the lack of traffic.
You will notice the absence of people who work or travel here.
If you are coming from out of state or travelling on a short weekend, you may be tempted to get a few days out of town.
However, when you look at the population and its size, you realise that Portland is not the largest metro area in the world.
The average annual population is just under 1 million, which is less than half the number of people living in New York City.
The city has a population density of just over 40 per cent, and is home to just over 20 per cent of the US population.
This makes Portland an attractive place for people who want to have a quiet weekend.
There is plenty to do in Portland, but there are some activities that you will want to do if you are heading back to the city: The Golden Gate Bridge has the highest number of bridges on the planet, with an average length of 7.6 miles (14.2km).
You will also need to get over the San Francisco Bay Bridge to see the Golden Gate, or if you want to go for a walk, you can reach the Pacific Ocean from the Golden State.
A ferry from the Bay Bridge and a train from Portland’s historic downtown to San Francisco take just under 3 hours each.
The best way to get there is to take the Pacific Coast Freeway, which has an average speed of 50km/h (31mph).
If you do not have a car, you will be able to take a ferry or bus from Portland to San Jose, but it will take around 40 minutes.
A small bike tour of the area is also very popular, and there are plenty of options for renting bikes.
There are a few different ways to get around Portland, including a bus to the West Coast (which will take you through the Pacific Northwest and back), or by foot, bicycle or horseback.
Portland also has a thriving food scene.
There have been several festivals and concerts held here over the past few years, which can make for an interesting evening of food and music.
It is also worth checking out the art galleries, museums and parks in the area.
The Eastside is a fun place to visit if you plan to visit the Golden West Coast.
This is the city of the famous Portland Trail Blazers, and this area has some of the best views of the city and the bay.
If it is a weekend or a week-end, it is probably best to book in advance.
The Portland waterfront is also well-known for its seafood, so be sure to check out the area if you intend to visit Portland.
There will be some good bars in the city as well, including the old city pub and the Pearl District pub.
Portland’s beaches are also well known for their surfing, with some great surf spots like Surfing Portland and Surf Portland.
Some of the most popular surf spots are the Wrecking Bar, Beach House and the Portland Surf Club.
There may be some beach volleyball in the Pearl City, but you may want to check the Portland Women’s Club for volleyball.
There’s also a huge number of kayaks, paddleboards and scooters available in the Portland area.
In Portland, there are many parks and open space.
The Pacific Park is a national treasure, with over 30 parks and many other places to explore.
There aren’t many open spaces in Portland but you can check out Portland’s most popular destination, Pioneer Square.
The old Portland neighborhood of Pioneer Square is the center of the community.
The district is full of bars, restaurants and entertainment, so if you come on a weekend, it may be best to check it out.
If there is a big event, it can be hard to find a place to watch, so it is worth checking in on some of your favorite spots in Pioneer Square, such as the Portland Museum of Art.
If Portland is in your plans for the summer, it might be worth checking it out if you can make it.
If your destination is not on the list, there may be another city nearby.
For example, if you would like to visit Vancouver, British Columbia, it would be a good idea to visit one of the other cities in Canada.
