Portland’s Downtown Cultural District, The Pearl District, the performing arts scene and Powell’s, the world’s largest independent bookstore, help make the rose city a hub of arts and culture. The city’s many neighborhoods offer a culinary paradise with chef-owned restaurants serving locally grown foods and wines. Portland has many nicknames: “Rose City” (for the three spectacular rose gardens and the annual Rose Festival celebration), “Beervana” (Portland has more brewpubs than any city in the world), “Bridgetown” (8 bridges span the river into downtown), and was recently named “Greenest City in the World” by Popular Science.
