How the city got its name is rather interesting. It used to be just known as “the clearing” in the early parts of the 19th century. William Overton got interested in the commercial potential of the place so he decided to claim the land with financial help from his partner Asa Lovejoy of Boston, Massachusetts. Overton’s share was later sold to Francis W. Pettygrove of Portland, Maine. The two could not decide whether to name the place Boston or Portland so they decided to solve the issue via a toss coin. In a best of three tosses Pettygrove prevailed so “the clearing” got the name Portland. Now the city has been nicknamed “The City of Roses” because of the many rose gardens there most notable of which is the International Rose Test Garden.

Apart from these rose gardens there are also a lot of tourists’ attractions in Portland. There many parks, concert halls, theaters and museums. It also hosts festivals like the Portland Rose Festival and Oregon Brewers Festival.
