I snagged cheap tickets for a fun weekend getaway to portland a few months ago and I spent all last week planning it. Lots of activities were on my agenda and we managed to do most of them despite the ridiculous 100-degree heat.Our airbnb was extremely well decorated and had a beautifully stylized bohemian look.
It was also the weekend of the awesome craft fair Crafty Wonderland that featured a bunch of local artists. A rapper who performs with cats was also there and it felt like a skit from Portlandia.
After the fair we walked around a bit and found ourselves in downtown Portland where we found cool art and strong coffee.
Sunday we woke up early and took an Uber to Portland’s famous Japanese Gardens. We walked around for a while then headed over to the rose test garden where we saw countless varieties of roses.
It definitely was a good mini-summer trip and if you get a chance I would highly recommend visiting this lovely and strange city.
