About Portland

Portland, Oregon, host for Entomology 2014, offers limitless recreation, fabulous food and drink (including delicious microbrews), and a flourishing culture. Enjoy the arts, explore the distinctive neighborhoods, and enjoy the variety of nightlife. Portland’s modern transit system makes getting around easy. Stop in the famous Powell’s City of Books, an independent bookstore that fills an entire city block with more than a million new, used, and out-of-print books; and grab a one-of-a-kind donut from the Voodoo Doughnut shop. And plan extra time around the meeting to explore the amazing wine country, Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, Oregon coastline, and other unique areas that are all within easy reach of Portland.
