Whenever we went on vacation last year, we had no idea just how much we were going to love the diverse culture of downtown Portland, Oregon.
We actually ended up going there somewhat by accident.
We weren’t even planning on going to Portland at all, but then we noticed that flights there were really cheap and we decided to try going to a place that we had never been to before. Now, I am really glad that we ended up going to Portland because we both absolutely loved it. We stayed downtown and we didn’t even need to rent a car. Downtown Portland is served by the city’s public light rail, the Portland streetcar, and a bus system. Not only that, but Portland has a very compact and walkable downtown area. It has so much great food, tax free shopping, green spaces, and endless things to do, taste, and see. There are tons of retail brands and countless food carts all around the city. We loved it because they were all within walking distance of our cute little hotel. We stayed in a small boutique hotel that was so quirky and fun. It was actually right next door to a locally owned cannabis dispensary. We met the owner of the cannabis dispensary, and we were able to purchase some really great edibles there since cannabis is completely legal in the Portland area. I had such a great time in Portland that I really want to go back there again in a year or two. This time, it won’t be an accident, either!
