Some our favorites when we have guests in town: 1. Portland Saturday Market fun shopping for local stuff, music and people watching 2. the Avalon theater and arcade on Belmon – 5 cent games and cheap movies 3. Rent bikes on Portland’s waterfront for an awesome ride through Kerr cycles. 4. Saturday morning farmer’s market on the park blocks – delicious food and free music and cooking demos
Other questions about Portland
- I would like to take a tour to the Oregon coast from Portland but I have only 5 to 6 hours for this trip. I would love to stop at Astoria first and then to the coast, but I have no idea where to go next. Could you suggest any interesting attractions or beaches?
- I will be in Eugene for a meeting on Jan 14th and 15th and would like to see some of the Oregon Coast; perhaps on the previous weekend or maybe starting on Jan 10th. What area would be relatively easy to drive to from Eugene or Portland? What kind of weather should I expect? Can you suggest some B&Bs? — Lois
- I’m staying in Portland for several days. What are some “don’t miss” places in and around the city?
