Highs & Lows

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

Itinerary Overview

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.
