Portland Travel This Fall

I’ve returned from my first trip to Portland!  What a fun, artistic mecca.  I had a great time visiting and reviewing a plethora of neighborhood restaurants, shops, and day hikes with my good friends – the locals – Sara and Ari.

My personal favorites from this trip included an intense bike race in the middle of downtown, and dinner at feuding Indian Chaat house carts on a street corner nearby.  All of this was followed by a late-night bar session of shuffle board paired with Maker’s and Ginger.  Sara, who works for the Society for Environmental Graphic Design, and I also had a number of invaluable design and marketing discussions in the midst of all this beautiful scenery and excitement.

Here’s my quick guide to the city on Examiner.com, divided by neighborhood and with a special focus on outdoor activities and brunch, including photos of gorgeous rose gardens and other can’t miss places: Quick Guide to Portland
