Despite its nearly ever-present clouds, the attractions of Portland, Oregon, are anything but dull. From world-class shopping to jaw-dropping natural sights, this city is sure to amaze even the most seasoned traveler. So grab your windbreaker, jump into your Portland car rental and set off! The city's nearly 600,000 residents are a welcoming bunch, even if they are a bit quirky.
The wild (North)west
Portlanders love visiting the plethora of natural escapes that they are just minutes from downtown, and you'd be a fool not to take your Portland rental car to one of these world-class natural playgrounds. A favorite of many is Multnomah Falls. Located just a short drive beyond downtown, the falls are a 611 foot swell of icy glacial waters. Unlike many glacier waterfalls, Multnomah is a year-round attraction, making anytime a good time to visit this magnificent roaring sight! If you're a big fan of hiking, a trip to Mt. Hood is in order. Fans of classic horror movies will recognize Hood's Timberline Lodge to be the same one featured in "The Shining." However, you don't have to worry about ghosts if you decide to stay a night up here - there's never been a sighting.
Shop til you drop
Grab a cup or two
Oregon has the distinction of being one of a handful of states without sales tax, and with Portland encompassing so many great stores, there's no reason not to spend some of your trip to Portland doing some retail therapy. Drive your Portland car rental to some of the city's largest chain retailers like Nordstrom and Macy's, or head to the Pearl District to check out a number of smaller boutiques. From stylish caps to one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for a special person in your life, you are sure to find that perfect something here.
While Portland may not be as famous as Seattle for its java, the City of Roses is home to one of the Pacific Northwest's most beloved coffee roasters: Stumptown. Steer your Portland car rental
in the direct of Southeast Division Street to visit Stumptown's flagship location, and prepare to be amazed at the slow roasting and carefully-prepared espresso you receive. Don't be surprised if you end up ordering a second latte.
