The real Portland

rainey | Feb 25, 2014 11:31 AM


My husband and I will be driving up to Portland from Los Angeles this weekend. Our intent is to see as much of authentic Portland as possible in a couple days.

We're really, really, really not interested in tourist stuff or top drawer Portland. We want to see what most says "Portland" in a day-to-day real life way.

We'd be grateful for your suggestions of where to go and what to look for. If you're from Portland please tell us what you love, what you miss when you're away from home and some of the grungier aspects that are iconic of Portland too. Thanks in advance.
