    Powell's City of Books

    109 reviews

    I've been lucky enough to visit some amazing bookstores around the world, but Powell's made my jaw drop. Four aisles just of cookbooks? A travel guides, language and literature section that takes up one-third of an entire floor? I only wished that I could have come on Saturday or Sunday, when the rare books room is open. Check the website ...

    Portland Saturday Market

    39 reviews

    Wow, what fun! This market is very Portland! All kinds of vendors that specialize in everything from making hats to little machines that turn virtually anything into a speaker. Down by the river you can take in a nice view while you enjoy treats from the food carts!

    Japanese Garden

    28 reviews

    Peaceful, serene and beautiful. Designed by the vision of Professor Toto, a renowed, major landscape architect from Japan. The tranquility of walking through these five acres offers a really authentic, old-world Japanese experience within downtown Portland.

    Portland Farmers' Market

    24 reviews

    5 stars for piles and piles of chantarelles and black trumpets piled higher than I have ever seen before or since. I just hope you have a frying pan. Oh and if you happen to run into the guy who has coffee flower honey...get it! It's unreal.

    Pittock Mansion

    20 reviews

    I didn't get to tour the interior of the mansion as I arrived past open hours, however, I enjoyed the view of Portland from the surrounding public park. The grassy areas seemed like a good picnic spot, too. Visiting the park should be on a "what to do for free in Portland" list. Free, ample parking, plus it was free ...

    Portland Art Museum

    16 reviews

    I like the Portland Art Museum. When I lived in Vancouver, we would visit Portland quite a bit because of proximity and the art museum was one of the places to go. I enjoyed the layout and the collection which does include a rotating exhibition. Check it out for some culture while you're in the city.

    Powell's Books on Hawthorne

    13 reviews

    I enjoyed browsing around throughout this interesting Powell's bookstore with a home and garden theme. My son ended up with some cute gold dragon object, while I traversed the maze-like layout of this relatively small space and took a peak through the direct connection into Pastaworks. I came out of the store with the impression that this place was a ...
