Portland

Jump to last reply

I am going to Portland 9-12 of March for a college visit at Pacific (Hillsboro Campus). The interview process is 8-4 on Monday. We arrive mid day on Sunday and leave mid day Wednesday. It is a quick trip! And we have been to Portland a few times.

I am looking for things to do with 2 parents and a young PhD bound student. We will either use taxi or street car transport while in the city. We love to eat. And have been to many good restaurants in the area (Mcmenninman's, Opa!, Portland City Grill, as well as others-cannot remember names). We have taken the token Portland dinner cruise, been to the Chinese gardens. We are renting a condo on the water (on the walking trail, which we will be using every morning) by Union Station.

I want to try Pok Pok (have listened to many programs on Splendid Table and want to try it. And have Powell's on the list to do as we are all readers. Read on city website that the Portland Market is open on Sunday. This is our travel day. Is it worth rushing down to spend a couple of hours there? (side note daughter is flying in from Midwest and we are driving large pickup as we will be coming from Yellowstone area) so adults maybe tired from drive depending on weather. May just want to do something really casual.

WE like breweries. Really don't have time to do Winery visits (which we have been to a number in the area--love williamette valley pinot noir. We are not really looking to do a wham-bam whirlwind trip as we know it is basically one full day to explore things we haven't seen yet. We know March weather can be hit or miss, so.....Any feedback is appreciated.
