Walking tours, restaurant and shop recommendations, and side trips. The ultimate guide from a Portland, Oregon native.
I have a few weekends in my hometown of Portland, Oregon, coming up, and I feel refreshed and relaxed just thinking about it. There’s something different about that Pacific Northwest air and green space that does it to me, every time. I’ve been meaning to share my favorite spots with you in the form of a Portland To Do list for a long time, and I get asked for my favorite spots again by a friend – so here we are.
Portland still feels like a small city to me, but every time I return, I am amazed at what new spots have cropped up for the people flocking there. I recommend renting a car to see the city fully, though public transportation has made it easier to get around without one – especially if you’re sticking to the city itself and not venturing out.
