The second largest city in the Pacific Northwest after Seattle, eco-friendly and laid-back Portland is located on the banks of the Willamette River. The city has an eclectic arts and cultural scene and is home to many craft breweries and independent coffee shops and restaurants. While the state of Oregon has plenty of attractions, a few of the highlights include the breathtaking Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, Mount Hood – another stratovolcano in the Cascade Range – and Crater Lake National Park, home to the deepest lake in the country.
