PORTLAND INFORMATION

Located in the Pacific Northwest, Portland is one of the most progressive cities in the country for land use and conservation issues. Portland is the largest city in the State of Oregon and is nicknamed "the city of roses" because its climate is good for growing roses. It was established in 1851 and named after Portland, Maine. Not only is the city known for its roses, but is known for its public transit, land use planning and microbreweries. The Portland Trailblazers (NBA) are the city's only professional sports franchise. They play at the Rose Garden Arena.
