STAY // Stay at the ultra-hip Ace Hotel in downtown Portland. The second location in the hotel’s portfolio, this property epitomizes Portland’s eclectic vibe.
SIP // Booze while you browse the racks at E. Smith Mercantile. A bar in the back of this shop provides seasonal herbal, fruit and floral infusions in combination with classic cocktail recipes.
NIBBLE // With so many good options, we’re highlighting just a few of our faves: The London Plane and The Walrus and the Carpenter, both located in Seattle, WA; graze your way through Portland at the Pine Street Market and the Portland Famer’s Market (don’t miss the Pine State Biscuits)!
EXPLORE // Visit the International Rose Test Garden and Portland’s Japanese Garden. Take a day trip to the Columbia River Gorge where you can white water raft or hike. Visit Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast. Head to Washington State’s San Juan Island for an afternoon of whale watching or set sail across Seattle’s Puget Sound. For travelers looking to pick up a memento to remember the trip, visit some of our favorite little shops in Portland: Alder & Co., WM Goods, Frances May, and Backtalk.
