If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.
One of the nation’s most beautiful cities — one where roses grow naturally and downtown borders a 5,000-acre forest reserve — Portland is a city almost as famous for bicycle-friendliness as it is for green space. A well-developed network of bicycle routes links every part of the city, from Skidmore Fountain in Old Town to the city’s many picturesque parks. Take part in an extensive, two-wheeled exploration of downtown Portland. Bike along the Springwater corridor rails-to-trails path and by the lovely Willamette River. Refuel with culinary delights ranging from local favorites to a meal in the city’s oldest restaurant.


• Visit Portland’s Saturday market, the nation’s largest weekly open-air arts and crafts markets.
• Enjoy beers and wines local to Portland, home to more craft breweries than any other American city.
• Explore Portland’s many gardens, as well as the fruits of a unique civic policy of promoting public art.
