Portland was just voted #3 for healthiest vacation spots in the US according to Nerdwallet, a consumer advocacy group!
Here’s what they have to say about Portland:
If you’re looking to save on your hotel this summer, Portland’s average nightly rate of $164 may be appealing. For an even cheaper option and alternative experience, check out Tierra Soul, an urban farm and guesthouse that has rooms with a queen-sized bed for just $105/night. If you’ve come to eat, try an Eat Adventures Portland food tour or a meal at Noble Rot, which features local and organic ingredients, many of which come from the restaurant’s rooftop garden. If you’re in Portland in July and have a taste for good beer, check out Oregon Craft Beer Month—not necessarily a healthy activity, but well-deserved after a Cycle Portland Bike Tour. To escape the city you can also venture about 10 miles north to Sauvie Island, half of which is a wildlife reserve.
Looking for a great ride idea for around Portland with great views and even swimming? Take the Sauvie/Skyline Ride – 32-45 Miles. Pick up this loop just a few blocks from Cycle Portland and stop in for a map!
