Close to the City

Gresham is just east of Portland. You can easily get to the city for a late night show, daytime event, or date night out without any hassle. You will love how close you are to the heart of the city without having to live too close. Within minutes you can ride your bike along the Willamette River, enjoy lunch at a downtown food cart, or explore the city right from your backyard!

Close to Nature

If you are not a city person, you’re in luck! Mt. Hood, gorgeous national parks, and endless trails can be found west of Gresham. You won’t believe how gorgeous the hikes are and how much wildlife you will see when you step out your door for an adventure. Want to get even further away from the city? Keep driving West and you will eventually find ski resorts and getaway cabins perfect for snow lovers.

4 Seasons

The weather in the PNW is typically very rainy. However, the good news is that you will get to experience all 4 seasons here. You may even see some snow in the wintertime if you are lucky. The shift in seasons is great for those that love the colors of Fall and Spring, but the extremes of Summer and Winter, too.

Day & Nightlife Activities

There is plenty to do in Gresham and other nearby cities. Visit a museum in Portland, grab a bite at a quirky restaurant, then drive 20 minutes south for paddle boating in Lake Oswego. Then, later that night, take a walk or a drive around the city to take in the sights and nightlife that is unique to Portland. No matter what you are interested in, you are sure to find adventure around here.
