12 Must-Dos (& Eats!) in Portland, Oregon

Good coffee, locally brewed beer, lush greenery, moody rain, artisanal pickles: these are a few things that come to mind when I think of the Pacific Northwest. When I visited Portland, Oregon, for the first time last year, I found all of these things to be true. I also discovered a city with a thriving food scene, focused on conscious growing and eating; and a friendly, fun-loving place with a host of adventures to be had. I instantly felt right at home.

Since I only had a few days in town, I barely got to cover the basics (Voodoo Doughnut and Hale Pele, anyone?). But I’ve already started planning my trip back.
