Portland is one of my favorite cities I’ve ever experienced. It is a wonderful bookstore city, coffee shop city, art city. It is so rich in culture. Here are some places you don’t want to miss:

  • Powell’s Books. Of course this had to be first on my list. I love bookstores, and I am a huge nerd. This bookstore is amazing. Lots of floors, lots of different rooms. They have all the books you need and all the bookstore photo ops you also probably need. I am not kidding you, I left Powell’s Books with the greatest feeling, I was a very happy girl.
  • Lan Su Chinese Garden. Beautiful Chinese garden in the middle of the city.
  • Voodoo Donuts. This famous donut place is well known. Make sure to try one. Remember, the magic is in the hole! I liked the Oreo one.
  • Pittock mansion. A short drive to the woods outside of Portland and you come to a beautiful mansion overlooking the city.
  • Hiking Multnomah Falls
  • Blue Star donuts.
  • Salt & Straw ice cream. Best ice cream around. Go here a couple times a day if possible.
  • Food Trucks downtown.
  • Watch all of Portlandia before you go (best show)
  • Explore every cafe, bookstore, record shop you can find. I love this city.
