Situated midway between San Francisco and Seattle, greater Portland has easy access to the largest domestic and international consumer markets including California and Asia. The seven counties of the Portland-Vancouver MSA are poised at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, amid lush national forests and the Cascade Mountain Range. The Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood, Willamette Valley vineyards, the Pacific coast and the Oregon high desert are all within a two-hour drive.
