Just as I did in NYC, I wanted to create a list of must-see in Portland (and some outside Portland) for my visit this summer. Below is my list:
City of Books must see: Portland Public Libray – Central branch and Powell’s
City of Roses must see: International Rose Test Garden, Portland Japanese Gardens, Forest Park, Hoyt Arboretum, and World Foresty Center
Art: Last Thursday on Alberta (I’m going to attempt to be a vendor too!), First Thursday Pearl District, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland Art Museum
Outside PDX: Kiteboarding lesson on Hood River, camping at Cannon Beach, sandboarding in Pacific City, a vipassana meditation retreat, Willamette Valley wine country
Extras: Brew tour (one brewery, one distillery), The Grotto, aerial tram ride
Looking forward to checking these off. 66 days and counting.
