Happy #Blogmas Day 13! I was recently in Portland, Oregon for a fun holiday trip. I spent a lot of time exploring the city and getting into the holiday spirit. This led me to think, why not do a blog post about places to see on your first visit? Being there is so much to do and see in PDX, it can easily get super overwhelming for first time visitors. Here are some key aspects in the city that first time visitors can be sure to stop by and enjoy.
1. The city’s water front.
Portland has a beautiful waterfront with plenty of walking trails to enjoy your morning run, and the beautiful Kimpton Riverplace Hotel to enjoy a nice breakfast by the water.
If you have been following LibbyLongstocking for a while you would know that Powells is definitely one of my favorite places in Portland. Powells is a city block long used and new bookstore located right in the heart of downtown Portland. Powells sells basically any book you can think of for such good prices. Definitely a must-see for any booklover!
3. Coffee Houses
One of the many things PDX is known for is there amazing coffee. The City offers so many different places to enjoy your morning cup of java. One of my personal favorites is Case Study Coffee in Portland’s popular Pearl District. The atmosphere is so trendy and perfect for instagram photos! Definitely recommend for first time and returning visitors.
Pistills nursery is a super cool, urban vibe nursery in Portland. The place is perfect for Instagram photos and also is super cute inside. The vibe from this nursery is so urban and chic, definitely recommend stopping by for some awesome photos and beautiful plants
Andina is a favorite restaurant of mine and my family in PDX. It’s a beautiful American style peruvian restaurant located in the Pearl District. Not only is the atmosphere fantastic, but the food is totally mouth watering! Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Portland.
