"Welcome ASPHO, to PDX - home of one of the world’s most famous bookstores, breathtaking natural beauty, famed dining (and wining and beer-ing). Whether your interest lies in viticulture, horticulture or eclectic culture, whether you’re an aficionado of brews, bikes or books, you’re sure to experience the community spirit we are known for. Our acclaimed chefs make the most of locally abundant ingredients from nearby farmland - world famous pinot noir, game, berries, crab, salmon, cheese and hazelnuts – so you can eat on-the-go from a food cart, DIY using the fresh produce from a farmers market, or overlook the Willamette River from a cozy restaurant. Sip a craft beer from one of our 75 (and counting!) breweries, grab a latte at Powell’s City of Books while wandering through an entire city block filled with eclectic offerings and passionate people. Take a hike in the Columbia River Gorge or the Mount Hood wilderness, go on a quick excursion to the Willamette Valley Wine Country, or the Oregon Coast. Relax as you stroll through the Ming Dynasty style Chinese Garden in downtown, the International Rose Test Garden or the tranquil Japanese Garden in the West Hills. And then, plan to come back and stay awhile!" - Janice Olson, MD MHA, Randall Children’s Hospital, Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Program
