the buzz




Portland, Oregon

The City of Roses is known globally for its progressive urban planning – highly networked public transportation, integrated city parks, and sustainable mixed-use neighborhoods. Hometown to the creator of the Simpsons, visitors might recognize street names as inspiration for the show's characters – Flanders, LoveJoy, Quimby, Terwilliger, and Burnside. While Portland offers all the amenities of a flourishing city, it is the surrounding landscape and natural resources that bring to life the culinary flavor. A variety of berries, mushrooms, fish, duck, emu, and smaller game animals find their way into savory dishes and onto seasonally changing menus. Paired with local micro-brews and world-class pinot noirs, such abundance is best complimented with outdoor activities and neighborhood walks. If visiting in the summer, be sure not to miss the Saturday Market (open Sundays too). Discover the assortment of handmade crafts by regional artisans and treat yourself to an "Elephant Ear" classically prepared with cinnamon and sugar.
