Sightseeing in Portland
Portland is one of America’s most hip cities and is well-known for its trendy bars and restaurants, arty brewpubs and coffeehouses and eclectic mix of sights and attractions. The laidback lifestyle and open mindedness of the people here make it one of the friendliest and most welcoming places to visit. You’ll likely leave Portland with a smile on your face and plans to return as soon as possible.
Portland is an easy city to navigate. Start off your day at the Pioneer Courthouse Square. This is the heart of downtown Portland and the most visited part of the city. Throughout the year the square hosts concerts, festivals, rallies, farmers markets and in the summer Friday night movies.
Hair of the Dog Brewing Co. is a great place to visit for a true taste of Portland’s individuality. This brewery is well-known for its unusual beer styles and processes which result in complex flavours and high alcohol content. Book a tour and tasting session and grab a bottle or two from the brewery shop for souvenirs.
The wealth of things to see and enjoy in Portland itself will likely keep you busy for days. No trip here is complete without a visit to wine country. There’s no better place than Willamette Valley which is bursting with vineyards.
Lincoln City on the coast is a mere 2 hour drive away, so the coast can easily be reached in a day. Once you arrive, traverse the coastline on horseback or enjoy an hour or two of kite flying.
Cross the border into the state of Washington to visit the stunning national parks on offer, such as the Olympic National Forest or Mt Rainier National Park or perhaps even visit the city of Seattle.
