Hannah's Travel Tips for Portland, Oregon

What is your best overall travel tip for Portland, Oregon?

Voodoo Donuts- kind of a right of passage. Blue Star has some better flavors, though. Shirley's Tippy Canoe- a little dive bar/restaurant outside of Portland. The atmosphere was great and food is awesome. Shirley is funny and definitely loves what she does. Huber's- The oldest restaurant in Portland. Famous for Spanish Coffee's and Turkey Dinners. I am definitely glad that we booked a couple of day tours through Hub World Travel. These really helped us to see a lot of places that I wouldn't have though to visit and the guides were really friendly and knowledgeable about the places. Worth every penny.

Explore outside of the downtown core! Our hotel was right downtown, and though there's lots of interesting things to see, the rest of the city has so much to offer as well! We met at La Bonita and the whole strip there was full of vibrant murals and quirky shops. A must see.
