Holidaze Are Here Again Details
What sets Portland apart from all other urban destinations around the globe? In a nutshell: everything! Oregon’s largest city is a vibrant metropolis located just a short drive from fertile fields in the Willamette Valley; year-round skiing on the slopes of Mt. Hood; miles of public beaches along the Pacific Ocean; and the awe inspiring vistas in the Columbia River Gorge.
Portland contains a distinct blend of historic buildings, modern skyscrapers and lush, green open spaces. Here you will find a wealth of cultural offerings—museums, galleries, art centers, festivals and events, a never-ending supply of culinary delights, and more breweries than any other city on earth. Best of all, there is no sales tax; the price you see on the tag is the price you pay.
No matter when you visit, Portland has it all! This is especially true during the winter holiday season when “The Rose City” is filled with impressive light displays, fun community events and all different kinds of melodious Christmas music.
Your incredible holiday journey begins as you watch the Christmas Ships cruise the Willamette River while you enjoy a delectable dinner on board the Portland Spirit (www.portlandspirit.com). Your riverboat cruise includes fresh Northwest cuisine, superb service, beautiful views of the downtown skyline and live entertainment.
