At the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, along the Willamette River lies Portland, one of the country’s most green cities. The environmentally-friendly way of life can be seen throughout the area in the preservation of nature trails and wildlife refuge areas. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the numerous opportunities for hiking, running, fishing, and water sports throughout the region. Portland is a bicycle-friendly city and provides an efficient light rail system for commutes to top work and entertainment destinations. Tour the Portland Art Museum as well as galleries in the Pearl District, shop the Portland Saturday Market, frequent a local microbrewery, or stroll through the International Rose Test Garden. The area is an ideal place to work and play, and UDR’s apartments for rent in Portland offer you the best of both worlds.
