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. Begin your Portland travel guide with the Old Town, where Portland was first settled - it still bears traces of the city’s historic past, but also holds the remnants of Chinatown, and bustling nightlife. The Pearl District is a very hip and trendy neighborhood, featuring a number of fine restaurants, and the famous Powell’s Bookstore. Nob Hill, also on the trendy side boasts a variety of retail shops, bars, and restaurants; and along Sandy Blvd, Portland’s own Hollywood is a commercial district and home to the city’s Hollywood Theater.
