Burnside Bridge and signboard
The Burnside Bridge over the Willamette River, which runs north-south through the city of Portland, is a historic bridge built in 1926 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge, with its two Renaissance-style towers and decorative railings, is also an active drawbridge that opens and closes more than 30 times a month, and can be crossed on foot. The "Portland Oregon" sign at the base of the bridge often appears on posters and postcards, and has become a symbol of Portland.
Portland, Oregon's largest city, stretches along both banks of the Willamette River. It is a compact city with an environmentally friendly transportation network and is known as one of the most livable cities in the United States. A city where individuality is respected and a free spirit thrives, Portland is a city of roses, art, parks, and more. Its rich culinary culture is also one of its characteristics, and you can enjoy locally produced and consumed gourmet food as well as famous craft beers and coffee.
