My tenth wedding anniversary passed without event--my husband and I had talked of taking a trip somewhere, but nothing ever came of it. Now, almost five years later, I'm getting my trip! Thanks to uber-low fares from Southwest, we are flying to Portland, Oregon this fall, just the two of us. And while this greatly anticipated trip is still months away, I've already started planning.
It seems like I'm hearing about Portland in some way or another almost every day. In magazines, on the blogs I read, on the Food Network--Portland, I'm convinced, has A LOT to offer. So now I'm on the hunt, scrounging to find all those mentions that seem to have hovered in my brain right up until the very moment that I need them--right now!
Don't get me wrong--I've already jotted down several not-to-miss spots (like the Waffle Window!), and I intend to be diligent in my further search (including a perusal of all Diners, Drive-ins and Dives spots and Throwdown with Bobby Flay venues). But I could use some help. If you are in possession of knowledge that could help me find the Best of Portland (and surrounding areas)--outdoors, shopping, eateries, you name it--I would truly be in your debt.
If we work together, we can really make this an awesome vacation for yours truly. And doesn't that sound like a noble pasttime? I knew you'd see it my way. I'll look forward to your comments.
