Portland, OR

Portland is Oregon's largest city, located 70 miles east of the Pacific Ocean at the northern end of Oregon's most populated region, the Willamette Valley. Its downtown area abuts the banks of the Willamette River, which flows north through the city and separates its east and west sections before veering northwest to join with the Columbia River. The Columbia River divides the states of Washington and Oregon and consequently.

Portland is a city with many beautiful parks and natural wonders to experience. The city sits atop an extinct volcanic field, known as Boring Lava field and it is one of only four U.S. cities with extinct volcanoes within its boundaries.

Adams and Mt. Rainier also are sometimes visible in the distance.

The city is home to numerous microbreweries, museums and galleries, trendy restaurants and is especially well-known for its food carts and street food. Honeymoon couples looking for honeymoon ideas in the U.S. will truly enjoy their experience in the Pacific Northwest and, especially, Portland.
