With a smorgasbord of restaurants, bars and bakeries with more (and better) offerings than we could hope to savor in a month of minimoons, Portland is a bonafide foodie’s paradise. Here are the best places to stay, eat and explore for your Portland travel agenda.
Where to stay: The Ace Hotel
Simple and sustainable, the Ace Hotel is the perfect blend of modern comforts, vintage appeal and quirky details. With its unique ambiance and proximity to area attractions, the Ace Hotel is a minimoon gem.
What to eat: Salt and Straw
Everyone deserves something sweet to savor on their minimoon, and the ice cream options at this local joint are unforgettable. They feature eclectic flavors like pear and blue cheese and strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper. Two scoops, please.
Where to go: Washington Park
Stroll through rose gardens (Portland is known as the “Rose City” for good reason), stop by the zoo and soak up incredible views of Mt. Hood at Washington Park. Avid walkers will find plenty of territory to cover, while casual visitors will enjoy the park’s more bite-sized attractions.
