Portland City Guide














I was in Portland a couple months back. I am just now having a moment to review the photos from that trip. I really loved Portland! Its a beautiful city filled with tons of cute shops, great restaurants and lush foliage. I came up with a Portland list based on what I was able to see while I was there.
