With more breweries than any other city in the world, bohemian, eco-friendly Portland is a verifiable beer-lover’s paradise—but that’s not all there is to it.

Sitting at the base of the iconic Mount Hood, this compact city is home to amazing food, funky neighborhoods, and plenty of outdoor activities. Start the day with Stumptown Coffee Roasters, explore miles of literature at Powell’s Books, head to the immaculate Lan Su Chinese Garden, and end at the first Ace Hotel.
