Im looking to take a mini vacation in the upcoming months. Somewhere just for a few days. I have a friend in Denver, so I visited there in May. My sister has a friend who would offer up her home in Portland, Oregon. From what I hear it sounds like a cool town, progressive. Have you ever been? Is it worth it to check it out do you think? Anything that a tourist "must see"? All insight appreciated :-)

Yes I've been several times. Our family lived in Klamath Falls till I was 12 and we would go to Portland for some events. Also, my daughter and her hubby lived up there for a few years so I visited a few times. Portland is progressive as you say and that is only one reason to like it. It's a great city for music and art. It's a long time since I've been so I'm not sure what the must-sees are. We did a lot of galleries and like everywhere I go, book stores.

Although my comment won't help but still allow me to do so. Well, I never been in Portland, so i have no any idea if it is a tourist destination.

I am clueless about that state. I have never been to the USA.

We drove to Portland from Illinois decades ago. All I remember is that it is a pretty area.

How I wish I can go visit those places you mentioned. Hope you'll find a perfect spot for your mini vacation soon.

I've never lived there but I've been through Portland several times back in the last millennium. I know a few people who have moved there and they all can't stop talking about what a fantastic city it is. They make me want to visit there, too. It may be one of the most progressive cities in America and I really like that. I hope you have a wonderful trip. Don't forget to bring an umbrella.

Never been there, but I've read a lot about the cycling culture there. A place I'd love to see and pedal through
