Portland is one of the coolest, hippest cities that you'll every visit. It's really just a great place to hang out - eat, drink and shop! You can just feel the vibe while you're there. Try it and you'll immediately know exactly what that means.

Voodoo Donuts

Voodoo Doughnut, Southwest 3rd Avenue, Portland, OR, United States

Donut shops are a big thing in Portland. They offer unique and offbeat flavors. The most famous shop is Voodoo Donuts. Try the Maple Bacon variety. (Yes, Bacon)

While there, be sure to take a picture at the "Keep Portland Weird" sign just a few yards away.

Rogue Brew Pub and Eatery

Rogue Brew Pub & Eatery, Portland Metropolitan Area, North Plains, OR, United States

Portland is the home to a vibrant microbrewery scene. Each has a great menu of a number of excellent brews and great pub food as well! We went to Rogue and enjoyed a couple of flights. Try sitting outside so that you can people watch, which is always interesting in Portland.

Saturday Market

Portland Saturday Market, Southwest Naito Parkway, Portland, OR, United States

The Saturday Market is amazing. A huge number of booths ranging from food to toys to collectibles. Great vendors - interesting people - a great day!

International Rose Test Garden

International Rose Test Garden, Portland, OR, United States

Really cool! Not something I'd normally do, but I found it very cool. Very unique roses.

Check the concert schedule for another great experience.

Ps also check out the Japanese garden across the road.

Portland Zoo

Oregon Zoo, Southwest Canyon Road, Portland, OR, United States

Fun, accessible zoo.
