A Glimpse of Portland’s Streets

Alex and I went to Portland in May as part of our grand Pacific Northwest Road Trip and we had an awesome time.  The city was simply amazing and I loved wandering the streets of the city.  We had just a short time to explore the city and we hit as many restaurants as we could.  We did not have a ton of time in the city but we also did not really have a plan at all.  We spent most of our time eating and drinking our way around.  I did end taking a lot of pictures of the streets and we also had a short stop at the Timbers’ stadium where our friend, Matt, works.

 

So here is just a little glimpse of the streets of Portland.

Really wish we had time to stop at Deschutes, next time!

Powell Books in HUGE!  We could have spent a whole day there

The Ace Hotel is delightfully hipster.  We spent the afternoon here drinking coffee at Stumptown.  By far the most hipster thing we have ever done

Loved all the fun restaurant signs across the city, in case you couldn't tell

  1. Amazing pics! Portland is definitely on my list of places to visit for all of the vegan food, the cafes, and the random hipster-ish things there! I also LOVE to show Portlandia! I don’t know if I would plan too much either since it would be so fun just to walk around and take it all in. Thanks so much for linking up with #WeekendWanderlust this week and we hope to see you back again next week! 🙂

  2. What a pretty city! I have yet to make it to the northwest, but Portland is definitely high on my list. If nothing else, for the bookstore. 🙂 Thanks for linking up with #WeekendWanderlust!

  3. I was also there this past spring, for my first time and also enjoyed it. I stayed at Ace Hotel, it was great! I also loved Washington Park and all it has to offer from the Japanese Gardens to the awesome Oregon Zoo!
