sustainable things to do in Portland Oregon

Portland (OR), USA

Half-powered by clean energy, home to the largest number of urban green spaces per capita in the US, and often named one of the best cities for vegans globally, there are plenty of reasons to visit Portland, Oregon – and easy to do it sustainably. Explore the city on two wheels, with its widespread network of cycling lanes and Neighborhood Greenways, or get quirky at the annual Naked Bike Ride, which began in protest against big oil. Explore an urban forest bigger than New York’s Central Park, harvest your own produce at community gardens, and support local businesses at neighborhood farmers markets. You’re never too far from wild nature here – with the Pacific Ocean, the snow-clad Mount Hood, and the Oregon high desert just a short drive away!
