Great pet friendly option in Portland when the Hotel Monaco rates are high. This is in an old building with charm and class. Walking distance to downtown attractions.

The Hillsdale Farmer's Market has a nice mix of high quality produce, baked goods, fish and elk, colourful Portlandia locals, and drizzle. It's located at Wilson High School and when it was in full swing last Sunday, parking space was at a premium. Of course, if I lived here, I'd probably walk, bike, or take the bus here.Popular withFamiliesLocalFoodies

When you walk through entryway from the street, Grüner is on your left and Alder & Co is just a step to your right. I delayed my meal to have a look around and I'm glad I did. Alder is a handsome space that is filled with various housewares, gifts, leather goods, and apparel. The store arrangement also has a ...

After my Son's Parent Teacher Conference, I drove over and took the Kid to the 3rd Floor of the OHSU Center for Health and Healing. This is the building down below from "Stratos", home of the OHSU Cloud Minders. It's at the foot of the tram and right next to the really cool ship building yard. The hardest thing about ...Popular withFamiliesBusinessBudget

My Son always seems to know where the nearest Gamestop is located. This one is on the 3rd Level in the Pioneer Square Mall, and is pretty lonely among the empty store fronts in this area. I came in to buy an accessory and things progressed to looking for a sweatshirt to what was the next coolest game that he ...

I went on Sunday evening to see their famous Sinferno performance because I had heard it was quite good. On their website if says Sinferno starts at 9PM but when we arrived they informed us that the live bands start at 9PM but the stage show didn't start until 11PM which was a bit of a bummer because the trains ...Popular withTrendstersLocal

So you're in Downtown Portland at night and you have a hankering to see a real core Drag Show? Something that combines trashy, glam, moments of quiet beauty, and the chance to get wittily insulted by the hostess? This is true Eleganza Extravaganza. The place has a deep history after City Nightclub (RIP) and Darcelle XV (RIP, but I think ...Popular withLGBTNightlife

The Skidmore Saturday/Sunday Market seems to be the red headed step child to the flashier Portland counterpart on the other side of the fountain. Actually, I'm not too sure which Market the in-between Ankeny Arcade belongs as there's a clear cultural transition as you move towards the water. Just as they say that it's impossible to under dress in Portland, ...

During my last visit to Portland, my son really wanted to go to Cameron's Books. Apparently a relative of one of his former teachers helped start this book store back in 1938. And of course he told the clerk all about it almost immediately after we arrived. Cameron's is the Ying to Powell's Yang and is the real deal. There ...Popular withGreenBudgetStudents

"Sure I go to school. Same as you. I'm an American" Of all the times that I've been to the Portland Saturday Market, I've completely missed the Japanese American Historical Plaza at Waterfront Park which is just North. I'm really glad I didn't miss this and the nearby Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center during my walk. Haiku-engraved broken stones, cherry trees, ...Popular withOutdoor

First youth orchestra in the United States (goes back to the 1920's). Super talented kids, many of whom go on to become professional musicians. Used to be very competitive, not sure if it still is. In any case, very impressive.Popular withAdventure

Hand-Eye Supply is located in Chinatown, and is an easy walk from the Portland Saturday Market, Voodoo Donuts, and other Downtown locations. This business originally caught me attention as part of an online product spotlight, and confirmed it when I had a chance to stop by during a recent weekend in Portland. Hand-Eye Supply's shtick is curated hardware. It's kind ...

Wandering around Portland's Pearl District, It was awesome to stumble across an actual bricks-and-mortar retail outlet of my favorite New Zealand wool clothing brand. Sure, it's not cheap. But it's sustainable manufactured and with some care, one of these wool sweaters, jackets or pullover tops should last you 10 years.Popular withDesignAdventureLuxury

My Son and walked over the Oregon Holocaust Memorial from the Rose Garden and I'm glad we did. It was a little hard to find, but it's relative isolation only enhanced the spiritual tranquility that we both experienced. We first walked up to the stone bench with wrought iron gating around a cobblestone circle. We noticed various bronze discarded common ...Popular withSpiritualHistoryLocal
