Overview

Did you know that Portland has over 60 microbreweries, giving it the title of “Beer Capital of the World”? It has more breweries than any other city in the world, including Cologne, Germany (which has plenty).

Here you’ll find a complete guide for everything you need to experience a great Long Weekend in Portland, whether your trip takes you to sample some of the plentiful brews or to enjoy the lush wonders of Portland’s numerous green spaces or to enjoy a surging culinary boom that has made Portland home to some of the most heralded restaurants in the U.S.

“I’d heard about the breweries in Portland, but I had no idea they were in dozens of older historic buildings. I found this fascinating. I like my beer as well as the next man, but after visiting Portland, I’ll never order another Budwesier or Miller again in my life! Life is too short to drink bad beer.”
--- Sanford P., Boise

“Being from New York where people are blunt to the point of rudeness, I was bowled over by the hospitality of the people everywhere we went and the warm welcome we received.”
--- Minnie C., Staten Island

“I’ll say this: go through the restaurant list with a fine tooth comb if you’re on a short visit the way we were. There are SO many good choices.”
---Juan T., Miami

You'll save a lot of time using this concise guide.
