"Green" is an apt word to describe Portland, Oregon.  Located at the meeting of the Willamette and Columbia rivers, the area abounds with natural beauty.  The roughly half-million residents take tremendous pride in their city's efforts to celebrate the environment and promote eco-friendly lifestyles.  Nature is at the forefront of local culture.  The city is studded with beautifully landscaped parks, wildlife refuges, and natural recreation areas.  Several spectacular gardens, including the authentically-styled Portland Japanese Garden and the International Rose Test Garden, home to over 8,000 roses, draw tourists from around the world.  The city boasts an impressive system of alternative transportation options, including miles of bike lanes, streetcars, and an aerial tram.  Just a short drive away from the city center, vineyards dot the picturesque Oregon wine country, and the Pacific Ocean offers a wealth of experiences from kayaking to surf fishing to whale watching.
