Popping About Portland

I arrived to a sunny, gorgeous Portland several summers ago—after a flight that was chock-full of huge arena football players! In the city for a conference, I got fantastic local recommendations for activities and dining from a former local. My colleague and I really enjoyed some fabulous meals—turkey at Huber’s (the oldest restaurant in the city that has every turkey dish one could ever conjure up) and a stellar view and dinner at Portland City Grill—as we spent three days in this great walking city.

Downtown was easy to navigate on foot, and a streetcar system covers much of it and the trendy Pearl District. I caught a festival of sandcastles whilst there and enjoyed the casual Pacific Northwest vibe of the city. The weather was fabulous and the sights (including the gigantic Portlandia statue and the famous Powell’s books) were great…I highly recommend a visit to the City of Roses!
