The City of Roses

Famed as the City of Roses, Portland is also known as PDX, P-town, Stumptown, Bridge City or Beervana - and there are many reasons that drive tourists here. Old Town, where Portland was first settled, still bears traces of the city’s historic past, but also holds the remnants of Chinatown and a bustling nightlife. The Pearl District is a very hip and trendy neighborhood, featuring amazing restaurants and the famous Powell’s Bookstore. Nob Hill, which is also on the trendy side, boasts a variety of retail shops, bars, and restaurants. Sandy Blvd, Portland’s own Hollywood, is a commercial district and home to the city’s Hollywood Theater.
