Portland


Oregon

Rain

Portlanders have a particular affinity for their liquid sunshine — especially since it's a base ingredient to many of the city's favorite beverages. Portland has almost as many varieties of rain as it has beer: mist, light rain, showers and the occasional downpour, to name a few. Mother Nature sets Portland's laid-back tone with her most common variety, the mellow shower.
ashington Flyer magazine proclaims Portland's rain is "half-hearted — sort of like those automatic fine-mist sprays that nourish veggies in the grocery stores — and it doesn't impede outdoor activities."

The rain's welcome presence is the key to our lush forests, verdant wine country and abundant gardens. As the weather changes, so does the personality of such places as the Japanese Garden, where water droplets shimmer on sculpted shrubs and create rippled patterns on the koi pond.

Of course, during a visit in summer or early fall, you're likely to miss the rain altogether.
