Portland, Oregon is one of my favorite cities.
Stopping briefly to the Portland Sunday market is quite a highlight and you be greeted by amazing Portland characters who would stop and have a little chat with you.
When the city slogan is Keep Portland Weird, you definately need to get there for a visit. The food is amazing, there are wonderful microbreweries there that provide you with endless array of great tasting beer.
Someday I will move there.. someday
