Perfect Places in Portland

Offering Portland's Finest Furnished and Unfurnished Places to Stay

Since downtown Portland is only 15 minutes away by car (and 35 minutes by bus) from our Portland rental home you can be downtown in no time with little effort. Below are the things we find ourselves doing every time we make the trip, so we thought we would pass this along to give you ideas for your trip.
  • The Pearl District
    Go By Streetcar!

    Portland's former warehouse district has become one of the trendiest spots in Portland. Art galleries, restaurants, design and specialty stores will make you want to add this to your travel plans. All the news that is news can be found at the Pearl's very own website here.
  • OMSI

    Our niece's favorite place in her younger years, but certainly fun for all ages. Tour the last diesel-electric sub built for the Navy, check out a turbine, or touch a tornado. Looking for some time off your feet? Then the IMAX theater or Planetarium are the ticket. Check out what's on the big screens here.
  • Powell's City of Books

    Ever wanted to know what one million books in one place looks like? Stop by Powell's and feast your eyes. A great place to get lost among the stacks. Have a book you have been dying to get published? No problem - Powell's has an app (well a machine) for that, check it out!
  • Saturday Market

    Old Town & Chinatown is a great place to stroll around and enjoy the architecture. This area boasts one of the country's largest restored brick and Italianate cast iron buildings. Also, the night life is great. Check the list of clubs here.
