For my summer family holiday this year, I decided to do something very simple with the children.
We spent four nights in Portland, Oregon and stayed at the Heathman Hotel which is a very lovely old world style hotel. Portland’s reputation was not for naught it certainly had an amazing foodie scene, the nature was beautiful, but not as magnificent as the stunning northern Californian Redwoods.
Here are my top 4 reasons you should go check out Portland, Oregon.
1. Portland is still known as one of the last hippy cities & enclaves in North America with it’s classic slogan “Keep Portland Weird” strewn about the city. I really enjoyed the quirkiness throughout the city.
2. The beautiful natural features of the land…fresh water rivers, lakes, mountains, forests and waterfalls to explore and create a very nice atmosphere by being fully immersed in all of the wondrous nature always a lovely place to be with Family. I had the chance to splash around in the rivers & waterfalls w/ my family which was a very magical experience.
3. The burgeoning farm to table foodie scene is always fun to explore with family, we enjoyed the Woodsman Tavern together which had a very nice old school tavern vibe with all the luxuries of a big-city restaurant.
4. Last but not least we really enjoyed the nations largest independent bookstore Powell’s where I spent the good half of an afternoon indulging in all of the fantastic literature.
