Going on a business trip to Portland? After a long day at work, make sure to recharge your drained energies by exploring the city at your own pace. If you want to stay social, why not take out your colleagues or clients to experience this amazing city together?
Portland is home to over 70 microbreweries, so there is more than enough space for you and your colleagues to kick back and enjoy a beer or two after work. Also, just in case you need some coffee in your system to tackle a long day, Portland also boasts dozens of micro-roasteries. Alternatively, you can take out your clients or colleagues for a more casual lunch meeting and go around town to try out some local street food at the hundreds of food carts around.
Are you looking for entertainment while blowing of some steam? Then, why not visit a local sports game? Portland is home to the Moda Center which is the stadium of NBA team the Portland Trail Blazers and the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer. The local universities also have teams in sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball, and football. There is something to be had for everybody.
Just in case you would like to do some exercise yourself, Portland loves activity as well. Locals do a lot of running and bicycling and in the winter also skiing and snowboarding. If you have the time and facilities to head outside the city, you can even go hiking on one of the surrounding mountains, such as Mt. Tabor.
