Fast Facts

 

Portland’s has more breweries within its city limits than anywhere else in the world. They even have kid-friendly brewpubs, offering on-site movie theaters, arts and crafts and more. What parent could resist?

Although Portland is called the “City of Roses,” these fragrant flowers are not indigenous to the region. The Pacific Northwest’s first rose bush was sent to Anna Marie Pittman in 1837 and planted nearby. In 1889, the Portland Rose Society was born. Fifteen years later at Portland’s only world’s fair, the city planted 10,000 or so rose bushes. A Rose Festival was held two years later, and these once transplanted beauties continue to be celebrated at an annual festival to this day.
