Portland, Oregon, is renowned as a green and extremely hospitable place to live thanks, in part, to its location on the Marine West Coast. This oceanic climate provides a Mediterranean feel which is perfect for horticulture and hence Portland is also known as the City of Roses. As the most environmentally friendly city in the United States, Portland does its upmost to maintain this honour by providing a free tram service and an eco-friendly light-rail system which makes getting around extremely easy and economical. Places to visit include: Portland Art Museum, the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Oregon Zoo, Classical Chinese & Japanese Gardens, several microbreweries and the sites from the 2008 film, Twilight.
