Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
Portland is known for being laid-back, environmentally conscious, and family friendly. This is a great place for parents with small kids, who will be welcomed with smiles and sippy cups in most restaurants (and what's a wee one not to like about a city that has a water spray sculpture of Ramona, Ribsy, and Henry Huggins?). Older kids will enjoy the OMSI, thrill rides at the Oaks Amusement Park and the cool shopping venues, like Powell's and Portland's Saturday Market.
