I haven’t been to Portland in years and was so excited to head down again for a mini weekend trip with my girlfriends. We found a killer deal on Hotwire for the Crowne Plaza, which was in close proximity to practically everything! Since we had a short weekend, we spent most of our time on Alberta Street and downtown. I’m also so thankful I found Darling Distraction! Holy cow, cute stuff…AND tax free! I wish I got more photos, but it was distracting with all the shopping and all. 😉
Travel Portland also reached out to me before our trip and sent over some great zines that covered every inch of Portland! The pizza zine came in super handy a few times, haha! They also had some great recommendations on places to buy cacti and succulents, plus coffee places. Loved them!

I found the most interesting part of Alberta Street were all the murals and colorful walls…so much so that I’m wondering why Seattle is not stepping it up, you know? Sheesh. I can’t think of a better way to display your menu than on a huge red wall with a burger that says, “I’m delicious.” Can you?!

I loved Portland so much and feel the need to go back every few months, after all it’s only a few hours away. We also drove around looking at all the adorable houses, which was sort of a weird highlight. We’ve been looking for a hour up here and so many are just cookie cutter and boring. But Portland….all were adorable craftsman homes. (I want one so bad!)

    I have a friend in Portland and I really want to see her, but I’m scared of the crime rate in Portland lol I need a security detail.

    What?! I didn’t even know that had a lot of crime, ha. Well all these places seem to be okay 😉
