My brother-in-law and sister-in-law went on a trip to Portland, Oregon this summer. Here is a small guide and some great pictures of things to do and see if you ever make it out west.
The Pearl District is a must see area of town. It hosts lots of great boutiques and restaurants, including Cargo (pictured below). Cargo is an “importer of handpicked artifacts and antiques.” The store is full of great finds from all over the world. Other great shops to check out are: Bubble Boutique, Possession, and Knit Knot Studio.
My absolute favorite thing about Portland is Powell’s City of Books. Powell’s is one of the world’s biggest bookstores, with seven locations in the Portland area including a specialty store of just home and garden books! Powell’s has a great selection of both new and used books.
Portland has so much nature to see. This picture was taken at the International Test Rose Garden:
