Portland was incredible… long weekends and best friends are always a fantastic combination, but choosing a new city that was beautiful, walkable, and packed with incredible shops, bars and restaurants made for one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time.

I always survey social media friends for places to visit and things to do while traveling, so I wanted to recap my favorites here in case any of you have any upcoming trips to Portland. I have a lot of travel coming up (!!!) so this will be an ongoing series on TAE… my next trip (Miami) is this weekend.
