Things to do in Portland
The Washington Park in Portland is a one-stop point to see how beautiful a
combination of colours and fragrance can be. Created on a wild land
purchased by the city in 1871, the garden has now beautifully evolved into
many smaller gardens, none more famous than International Rose Test Garden
where new varieties of roses are grown. This is seconded by the Portland
Japanese Garden, which is one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Portland Art Museum
Founded in 1892, the Portland Art Museum is the oldest museum in the
Pacific Northwest. It is home to more than 42000 artefacts and objects of
historic and cultural importance. Some highlights here include Native
American artefacts, English silver, Asian art, and Northwest art. One can
also take out time to appreciate Vincent Van Gogh's Cart with Black Ox
Spread across 12 acres in the Washington Park in Portland, the Japanese
Garden is built on the site of a former and closed zoo. The garden was
opened in 1961 and has beautifully evolved into many landscaped styles that
all offer a uniquely peaceful experience. Also, of note here are garden
spaces like Flat Garden, the Strolling Pond Garden, and a Tea Garden.
Best Time to Visit Portland
Summer season (the months from June to August) are the best to book your
flights from Oakland to Portland. It is the season when the city is busy
with the festivities of Portland Rose Festival and Oregon’s Brewer Fest.
Book your flights from OAK to PDX during summer season to enjoy famous
street festivals like PDX Bridge Festival, Hawthorne Street Festival, and
The Bite of Oregon. It is advised to book Portland flights in advance to
avoid paying more during peak season.
