Experience what Portland has to offer for less
During your next getaway to Portland, you're sure to find a fantastic art community that is surrounded by fantastic nightlife. Although downtown is the place to be, you'll want to make sure that you pick up a Thrifty Portland car rental to get you around to the great green spaces surrounding the busy city. Keep an eye out for Portland deals.
Make like a local for less
As you venture through the city's downtown, don't miss spending a few hours in Powell's City of Books. If the literature doesn't keep you entertained, the people watching sure will. The local farmers markets are also worth making a point to visit. The friendly vendors are no strangers to offering free samples of their excellent products. Depending on what you're in the mood for, there's practically something for every type of palate. Some of the best markets include the one on Thursdays in Northwest and the massive Saturday Market right downtown.
Enjoy a local pint or spirit
Depending on which destination you set out for, you may or may not want to take your Portland rental car along for the ride. There are a number of brewery and distillery tours in the city that offer complimentary tours and tastings for guests. If you're in the mood for a beer, hit BridgePort Brewing Company on Marshall Street or Widmer Brothers Brewing Company down Russel Street. Looking for something a bit stronger? Try the Clear Creek or House Spirits distilleries instead.
