The second-largest city in the stunning Pacific Northwest also happens to be the largest in the State of Oregon, the City of Roses, Portland. Encompassing myriad microbreweries, mouth-watering dining destinations, a vibrant music scene, eco-friendly urban planning policies, and undeniable natural beauty, Portland has much to offer prospective homebuyers. Only seventy miles from the gorgeous Pacific Coast, Portland straddles the Willamette River and sits on the northern border of Oregon. Portland’s spectacular skyline is set against the stunning backdrop of Mt. Hood, which is only fifty miles to the east.
Within Portland, you’ll find an exciting urban environment with historic and modern architecture, gorgeous parks, including Forest Park and Washington Park, a lively downtown area, and abundant natural beauty with a river and a range of sloping hills. Additionally, in fewer than fifteen miles, you can reach the country from Downtown Portland, which generally isn’t the case with large cities. The city is segmented into five quadrants. The north and northeast, as well as the southeast and southwest quadrants, are divided by the Willamette River, while Burnside Street divides the north from the south. More specifically, North Portland is west of Williams Avenue and east of the river, while Northwest Portland is north of Burnside and Downtown, west of the river, and home to Old Town and the Pearl District.

Southeast Portland is south of Burnside and east of the Willamette River, while Southwest Portland is south of Burnside and west of the river, encompassing the PSU Campus, OHSU, South Waterfront, and the downtown core.
