Portland, Oregon is more hospitable to residents without cars than many other major US cities. It’s walkable, and its miles of bicycle paths make it a great place for cyclists. Portland offers public golf courses with reasonable rates for 18 holes, and hikers who don’t want to leave the city only have to go to Forest Park to get lost in its 70 miles of wooded trails.
Kayaking tours can be found through the Portland River Company. Located in the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, it offers 2 ½ hour tours for less than $50. Those wishing to get out of the city only need to travel south to Medford, whose proximity to Rogue River make it an ideal destination for fishing, kayaking and tubing.
