SEPTEMBER 19 - 26, 2015
A birthday trip where we spent most of our time in Portland and a few days in Seattle. I really loved Portland for its art crowd, food culture, and nature. My friend and I was able to eat great local food and it seemed as though every single one of those restaurants were spectacular. I really loved the area where all the food carts are. They are spread out all over the city.
We did a walking tour of the city which gave you a much better idea of what Portland is about. I learned that plenty of Californians have moved there to buy homes and pricing out their market. Which I knew but this was the confirmation. The tour guide also mentioned the natives of Portland aren't happy about it.
We also went on a hike. You can't go to Portland and not hike at least a day. Multnomah Falls and Wahkeena Falls which we knew it would be quite crowded with tourists.
In Portland, every part of town you get to is a community. Pockets of cool spots to hang out.
