Our hometown got a charming writeup by an Australian based paper, The Courier Mail. Their reasoning sound pretty good to us, so we thought we’d pass it along!
Their favorite reason to visit is how easy our city is to explore. They recommend taking a bike out, and between our bike friendly public transit and the hundreds of miles of bike lanes around the city, we’d have to agree. Beyond that, these Aussies appreciated the Portland brew scene as well as the affordable pricing on everything from gourmet food to souvenirs. Oregon’s lack of sales tax sweetens the deal just a little bit as well! For a cheap, hip vacation to a city exploding with life, head our way any time of the year!
