Portland: a city known for its copious amount of bike riders, independent coffee stores, street stylin’ hipsters, microbreweries, food carts and art, with a river that flows through all the madness. The locals have a slogan that pretty much sums the city up nicely, “Keep Portland weird”. Kudos to your, Portlandians – you’re doing a good job. The city’s beautiful natural resources lie just outside the metropolitan area and include Mount St. Helena, Columbia River Gorge and the striking Oregon coast. One of our fave things about Portland is the fact there is no tax on alcohol, which means it’s super cheap, which means you can have a lot of fun for not many moneys.
