The Portland Guide

As the country’s undisputed hipster mecca, Portland is the butt of a lot of jokes (see Portlandia for a full repository), but if you ask us, those bearded, tattooed baristas are onto something great. For starters, there’s the food scene, which thoroughly covers everything from specialty coffee shops and food carts to James Beard award-winning restaurants. Portland is also home to flagships of a few brands that are now national favorites, like Stumptown Coffee, Voodoo Doughnut, and even the Ace Hotel. And despite the rain, the city’s famously great for outdoor adventures, from hiking Mount Hood to the supremely bikeable downtown.
