About Us

The Portland Guide, aka, Portland's Visitor Information Guide!

For nearly 70 years now, The Portland Guide has been published for the sole purpose of being a useful guide for visitors coming to the city of Portland and the state of Oregon. Knowing that people are attracted to the natural beauty of the region, and the fact that Oregon is unlike most other single destination vacation sites, visitors coming to Oregon need to see all their options in one concise piece. Then, they can form a game-plan to fully explore the area.

Whether in a printed format, or within a digital application, The Portland Guide has always sought to provide the information wanted within an easy, user-friendly selection. Even in its printed form, Portland Guide is sized to be lightweight and easy to carry and reference while out and about.

Janet Patterson, the publisher of The Portland Guide, is a Portland native, and has seen many years of growth and development that makes her proud to be  part of this beautiful area. Having done an extensive amount of travel herself, she always remembers as soon as she comes back, that this is the only place she ever wants to call home.

With that in mind, spend some time looking over the web-site and enjoy your time in Portland and Oregon. Don't rush, take in as much as you possibly can, and just know that you will definitely need to come again to see the rest. Oregonians love visitors and will always welcome you back.
