Portland is the county seat of Multnomah County, and is the largest city in Oregon and the second largest city in the Pacific Northwest. Lauded as one of the best places to live in America, Portland has a vibrant downtown, diverse neighborhoods, natural beauty, good schools and friendly people. Portland is listed among the top 25 arts destinations in the United States, named one of the best cycling cities in North America, and is one of America's best walking towns. Portland maintains deep ties to the Pacific Northwest's natural beauty, with Mount Hood, the Cascade Mountain Range and the renowned Oregon Coast each just over an hour away.
