    Powell's City of Books

    1005 West Burnside, Portland, OR 97209
    5
    106 reviews

    The best thing about Portland. This is the largest independent new/used bookstore on the planet and encompasses a whole city block! The selection of used books here is absolutely astounding, and you can often find things here that aren't even available on Amazon. There's also a coffee shop on site, and you're allowed to bring in books and flip through ...

    Lan Su Chinese Garden

    239 NW Everett Street, Portland, OR
    4.5
    10 reviews

    Don't write this place off as too touristy. It's really relaxing and they often have tea tastings where they explain the history of the tea.

    Last five hours in Portland after a busy work weekend. Had to revisit Pearl district and I really love the area. Filled with caf├ęs, shops, brick and cobblestone. So much charm to stroll through and the Portland wet cold somehow makes it all the more charming.

    24 reviews

    The Japanese Garden is one of the very few tourist attractions in Portland. If you are visiting as a tourist it's worth checking out, it's also nice if you local and looking for something different to do.

The roses bloom from April through October with the peak coming in June, depending on the weather. It is the oldest continuously operating public rose test garden in the United States and exemplifies Portland's nickname of the City of Roses. During the summer we ...

    Alberta Street

    Northeast Alberta Street, Portland, OR 97211
    4.5
    9 reviews

    The recently gentrified Alberta Street is one of the most popular places in town to shop, eat, and people-watch. It's at its liveliest on the last Thursday of every summer month, when the lively "Last Thursday" street fair is held. Local artisans looking to make a buck line both sides of the street with their arts and crafts, and buskers ...

    Northwest District

    Northwest District, Portland, OR, USA
    4.5
    6 reviews

    Formerly known as the snootiest, most upscale quarter of Portland proper (now somewhat outshined by new growth in the Pearl District), the Northwest is still a clean, beautiful, posh little pocket from which to explore Portland's funky art, world-class food, and unmatched devotion to coffee and beer. The main drags are 22nd and 23rd streets, where you'll find independent cafes ...

    Classical Chinese Garden

    Portland, Oregon, United States
    4.5
    9 reviews

    In downtown's Old Town and Chinatown historic district, this petite garden is a wonderful surprise. You might think from the semi-steep price of admission and the down-and-out streets nearby that this garden is isn't worth making time for. Wrong. Landscape architects from China came over expressly to build this garden from the ground up. It's even diverting for kids, with ...

    Classic, traditional style looking book store. When I first entered I really liked the feel of the place. I could see that it went back for quite a ways but I was shocked how big the store was and how comprehensive and diverse their collection. I was even more surprised to find out that there is an even bigger location ...

    One of the best places for quintessential views of downtown Portland with Mount Hood in the background, Washington Park is a great place for picnics and play. The sprawling park features a mix of grassy fields and old-growth forest, as well as tennis courts, playgrounds, an archery field, and plenty of trails. Washington Park is also home to the International ...

    The Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial is located within the Hoyt Arboretum, with easy parking across the street near the Zoo. It was inspired by the Washington DC memorial and consists of several polished and curved granite obelisks along a lush spiral path. Each wall (with names you can touch) lists the names of all Oregon residents (by year) who ...

    Rose Garden Arena

    4.5
    11 reviews

    Portland's giant arena is beautiful, well-designed, and makes every effort to maximize audience experience no matter what seats you can afford. Parking is convenient and cheap (relative to many California arenas, that is), and though the food is expensive, at least it's good. This is one of my favorite indoor places on the West Coast to see a major act.
