Cities: Portland

Settled in 1829, Portland was named in a coin flip after Portland, Maine, birthplace of one of its founders (the losing option was Boston). An hour from skiing at Mount Hood and 90 minutes from the Oregon Coast, Portland is a recreational paradise.

Nationally recognized for its modern, urban style by magazines like Elle Décor, GQ and Travel + Leisure, the centrally located Jupiter Hotel is a popular stop for travelers, creatives and nomads looking to experience

So much more than you'd expect!  The Portland Aquarium brings you up close to dozens of species including sharks, giant octopus, stingrays, reptiles, birds and more.  They offer special encounters where you can actually interact with, feed and even touch the animals. Great for all ages!
