Be sure to checkout Powells bookstore (I think biggest book store in US) and def get some food from the food trucks
The weather in December gets pretty cold (35-50) and it gets rainy
Arriving in Portland was cold and foggy but nonetheless beautiful and very green. I loved getting food from the trucks, visiting popular bridges and seeing the unique colonial/modern fusion houses was super cool there. Another fun fact if you have ever read or seen the twilight franchise they filmed it in Portland and you visit the Cullen house. There are many forests and conservation areas nearby and mountains to hike MT Hood is in Portland as well. Portland has really cool and cute atheistic coffee houses, they’re really big on coffee there so if that’s you thing def get some! I loved Portland so much it had lots of unique beauty; from rainforests to the mountain views and huge Powells bookstore One more thing , Seattle Washington is only about a two hour drive from Portland so it can be a good day trip if you have the opportunity and time.

I traveled by car to most places because my cousin lives there but I Uber is good or bus. Because Portland is less city and more walking distance I think renting a car is a great idea
More rain than I thougbt
I stayed with my cousin so lodging I am not too sure about. But airbnb is a good idea if you want to be more on the country side rather than city.
