Ask anyone in the country about Portland’s culture and you’ll hear everything from ’90s grunge music to literature to art. But at the end of the day, the best way to put it is that it’s got everything. It’s been long known about the incredible musical innovations and vibrant live shows that come out of the area, but have you ever really thought about how truly lucky the city is?

Portland event calendarDowntown’s got complimentary Noon Tunes and Music on Main events throughout the year as well as 288 parks that bring in the Washington Summer Festival every August. And, if some like it quiet, the visual community can see everything from contemporary art to classic throughout the plethora of art museums around the area.

Speaking of visual art, there are THREE monthly art walks where the galleries stay open late and often times offer snacks and drinks on the first Thursday, last Thursday, and first Friday of every month.
