Southwest Portland – is a large area of town and home to Downtown’s fine dining, great food trucks, and indie establishments. The Portland Art Museum, with Native Northwest American and modern artwork. The Oregon Zoo is here in Washington Park with elephants and polar bears. Visit the International Rose Test Garden, and take in Mount Hood views while meandering through the Portland Japanese Garden. Hike the Woodland trails through Tryon Creek State Natural Area. Plenty to do in Portland’s Southwest!
