portland bound


In a few days I'll be heading to one of my favorite cities, Portland, OR. We'll be visiting good friends and definitely drinking lots of good beers, eating awesome meals and doing a whole lot of thrifting. Throw in a trip to some hotsprings and a hike in the Gorge and it's pretty much a dream mini-vacation. Although we'll be with our well-heeled Portland hosts, any must see/do/eat/shop tips are more than welcome!

Sorry, I'm of no help. I've never been to Portland...but lately husband is showing me articles about Portland that he keeps coming across in his readings...could he perhaps be hinting that he wants to move there? :D

He did however, live in Vancouver for 3 years and wished he had made the trek to Portland but he only got as far as Seattle...stay tuned!

Enjoy your trip and I'll just have to live vicariously through you as there are no vacation plans for me this summer *sniff*

Check out the newest hip neighborhood - the Mississippi district. Mississippi Pizza has some great eats and entertainment and there are cool shops popping up all over the place. Also, the Pittock Mansion is ALWAYS a cool place to hike and get a view of the city. Enjoy!

If you decide to see a movie while in Portland I highly recommend the Kennedy School. It's just fun to curl up on a couch with pizza and beer in a movie theater. Plus, the school has tons of artwork to look at before the show. Afterwards be sure and try a beer milkshake at the restaurant, it's surprisingly delicious! Have a great time in Portland!
