Welcome to Portland Travel Tips.
For many this has become the pop culture image of Portland:
Like all good stereotypes there is a certain element of truth to the caricatures in the Portlandia skit. One only needs to spend a little time in SE Portland to see that. However, for a lot of us locals we also see Portland like this:
Portland is a vibrant progressive city that has a healthy obsession with green living, good food and good beer (wine too). By creating this blog I wish to share with you all the amazing things Portland has to offer – from the great outdoors to all the great food, beer, wine, and spirits (there is a growing craft distillery movement in Portland but I’ll save that for a later post).
Finally, because travel is not cheap these days I will share tips to stretch your dollar here in town and share strategies I have learned over the years to save money on airfare, hotels, and car rentals.
Hopefully, by the end of your stay you will see Portland as a combination of both these videos and save some money too.
