Getting around:   Portland International Airport (PDX) is 13 miles northeast of the city with one easy-to-navigate terminal. There are several convenient ways to get into town from here: taxis, ride services, airport shuttles and the MAX Light Rail. The shuttle and the light rail are easy if you’re heading downtown and Lyft or Uber are also convenient if you're headed anywhere else. 

 

Portland

If you're looking for stuff to do, here our five of our favorite things. 

#1 - Dinner at Le Pigeon

Le Pigeon

This was the best date night we ever had, period.  But the menu of French-inspired food rotates, so just you’ll have to decide for yourselves.  In Portland style, they had a perfect restaurant and then put a bird on it.  Parfait.  (Pro tip, if you cannot snag a reservation, the 10-seat Chef's Counter is always open to those willing to wait.)  ($$$)

#2 - A walk around Portland Farmers Market (PSU)

Portland Farmers Market

If there’s not much sweeter than eating cherry tomatoes in Portland in late summer.  The produce! The food trucks!  The people watching!  Wandering around a farmers market is Portland at its quirkiest, its most vibrant, its best. Open on Saturdays from 8:30 to 2. ($)

 

#3 - A flight at Cascade Brewing

Cascade Brewing

Pucker up and toast to one Cascade Brewing’s sour beers.  The Blonde Ale Apricot is truly exceptional and there’s always the Sweet Cherry Kriek if you find you can’t stomach the sour.   Given the intensity and uniqueness of each brew, we recommend starting with a wide-ranging flight. ($$)

Sours really not your thing? More than 60+ breweries, cideries, wineries, and food carts will be at the  Portland Craft Beer Festival in Fields Neighborhood Park on July 6-8th. 

 

#4 - Get lost in Powell's Books

Powell's Books

Powell’s Books, the world’s largest independent bookstore, is where your inner nerd can finally find herself.   For everyone else, the ‘City of Books’ provides a map. ($)

 

#5 - A late-night snack at Voodoo Doughnut

Voodoo Doughnut is a Portland classic, but they still make ‘em fresh daily.  We’re told that the Bacon Maple Bar is Portland’s finest export, although we are partial to the ‘Oh Captain, My Captain’ (a vehicle for Captain Crunch).  Doughnuts not your thing? The store’s mishmash decor alone is worth the trip to Old Town. ($)
