Portlanders avidly gravitate to the outdoors and they're well acclimated to the elements year-round—including winter's wind, rain, and cold. Once the sun starts to shine in spring and into summer, the city fills with hikers, joggers, and mountain bikers, who flock to Portland's hundreds of miles of parks, paths, and trails. The Willamette and Columbia rivers are popular for boating and water sports. Locals also have access to a playground for fishing, camping, skiing, and snowboarding all the way through June, thanks to the proximity of Mt. Hood.
As for competitive sports, Portland is home to the Timbers, a major league soccer team with a devout local fan base, and NBA basketball’s beloved Trail Blazers, who play at the Moda Center (aka Rose Quarter) arena, just across the Willamette River from downtown.
