Portland is located on Oregon’s northern border on the I5 corridor, and is known for its quirky vibe. You can experience crazy donuts at Voodoo Donuts, browse the stacks at Powell’s Bookstore, shop until you drop at Lloyd Center, or explore the natural beauty of the Columbia River Gorge, ski Mt. Hood, or even venture to the Oregon Coast. But really, who want’s to do any of that when playing in a Pokémon Regional Championship is an option!
Portland has an easy to use light rail line, the MAX that connects major shopping centers and business districts.
