Visiting Portland was just a dream for me for many years. However, when my sister took a job in the city for a few months I knew it was time to go and finally make that trip a reality.

Honestly, the city was even more amazing than I expected. There was so much great food and the strange culture and beauty of the city permeated every corner I explored.

Of course these can’t do it justice, but hopefully my favorite pictures from the week long trip will inspire you to plan a visit to Portland as well!

Keep browsing for some Portland inspiration with this glimpse into the delicious eats, beautiful scenery, and unique PNW vibe that the city is all about.
