Mississippi Ave, a family-friendly avenue of restaurants and boutiques by day, isn't the kind of street most travel guides will send you to visit at night. You won't find a live theater, dance club, or movie house. What you will find is a busy...

3811 N Mississippi Ave Suite 1, Portland, OR 97227, USA
This was the neatest place to stumble upon while walking down the historic Mississippi Ave. in Portland. I love little hideaways like this - overflowing with plants and country style living but in the middle of a bustling city or street. I...

Celestial is the vibe at Ecliptic. And with a sky's-the-limit attitude, NoPo's busy brewhouse delivers on a number of innovative fronts. There's nothing special about the tilt-up concrete warehouse where Ecliptic does its magic. It's all about...

Box Social is about as close as you'll ever get to a classic speakeasy—small, nondescript, curtains drawn, and upon arrival you'll wonder if you need a secret password to enter. Deemed Portland's premiere drinking parlor, the Box is all about...

A trip to Widmer Brothers Brewing Company is a pilgrimage for many, but you don't have to be a card-carrying beer geek to enjoy this romp through suds and stainless. The guides who explain the intricacies of creating German-inspired beers know the...

It's really easy to be a veg-head in PDX. You can't turn around without bumping into something gluten-free, soy-free, or meat-free. The Blossoming Lotus produces some of the most creative and delicious concoctions that will make you wonder why...

An iconic name in Portland retail—as well as among readers who have never been to the city—Powell’s has multiple locations on both sides of the Willamette. The downtown store remains the one best suited for visitors to explore,...

The Portland Art Museum has been a fixture of the Rose City for longer than you’d expect—it’s the oldest art museum on the West Coast, opened in 1892. The current location, on the South Park Blocks, debuted in 1932 with a design...

I was on a cruise in Italy when I heard about this place. I'd mentioned that I was heading to Portland, and a fellow cruiser, a native of the town, had told me that if they had one recommendation it would be the ice cream at Salt and Straw. What...

NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210, USA
We came across this little area of Portland's Nob Hill by chance. We were on the hunt for ice cream. But we were charmed by what we found—a really beautiful run of shops, five or six blocks long, that evolved over the course of the road from new...

The Lan Su Chinese Gardens is a lovely place to regain some inner peace and admire the gorgeous gardens. The name of the garden comes from the relationship between sister cities Portland and Suzhou. Sounds from both Portland and Suzhou are...

Eastbank Esplanade, Portland, OR, USA
Visitors to Portland know all about Tom McCall Waterfront Park. In the summer, you can't miss the crowds swirling around festivals and street markets as you cross the iconic bridges. Locals, however, know to soak in a superior cityscape view...

Before I went to Portland I had never heard of a "food cart" before. I quickly learned that it's one of the biggest tourist attractions! All over the downtown area you can find clusters of food carts with options available for all diets (including...

Before leaving for Portland, I spent some time looking into the best vegetarian restaurants in the city. Habibi was recommended repeatedly so two friends and I (a vegetarian, a vegan, and a carnivore) had lunch there on a lovely Saturday...

There is an abundance of good Mexican food in Portland, much of it coming out of food carts scattered across the city. It's simple, cheap, and a bit one-dimensional. The next level separates the black from the refried, and Verde stands above those...

Portland is not lacking for parks and gardens—I've heard the Chinese garden in the Pearl district is a stunner—but I highly recommend the Japanese Gardens in Washington Park. Portland's a relaxed place anyway, but the Japanese gardens, said to be...

You don't have to suffer though the 2650 miles of the PCT to get a little wild around here. The 30 mile Wildwood trail, much of it in the heart of the city, defines the urban outdoor experience. Forest Park is the largest contiguous public park in...
