Car/Rental Car, Portland: 7 reviews and 4 photos
Portland is one of two major metropolis in the Pacific Northwest and is serviced by train. Amtrak runs from Vancouver, BC in Western Canada to Los Angeles, CA. Portland's train station is of historical interest even if you are traveling by car and just want to have a look. Built in 1890, its original design would have made it the largest train station in the world. As it is, it is quite large and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
We were in the midst of a six month car camping trip around the US when we visited Portland so we came by car. Typical distances and times: Portland to Oregon Coast-130 miles/2.5 hours.
