If you have never visited Portland, it is really a very interesting city, full of shops, restaurants, craft beer, coffee shops, and many other interesting things (a good zoo, the famous International Rose Test Garden, etc.). I was in Portland for a conference in April 2015. Though it was not my first visit to the city, it WAS the first time I explored what it had to offer. I visited my old favorite, the iconic Powell’s City of Books (which occupies a city block!!), had one of the best Mexican lunch in the Pearl District, a hearty breakfast at the Thirsty Lion (with boasts 40 draft beers on tap) located alongside the Saturday Farmers Market on the banks of the river, sampled the famous Voodoo donuts, and had a wonderful pizza at Firehouse Pizza (I think that’s the name).
Portland is one of the most pedestrian and transit-friendly cities in the U.S. For more details, please visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portland,_Oregon
I really believe this is a city worthy of a visit. Oh, by the way, most of the filming of the Twilight movies saga is a daytrip from Portland. Hope to see you there!
