Head straight to Powell’s City of Books on W Burnside St, NW10th Avenue. This is not up for debate.
Taking up an entire block, no stay in Portland is complete without a visit to Powell’s. Especially so when the weather out there is cold and rainy. Nothing beats being surrounded by over one million books, free usage of wifi at the Powell’s cafe and getting lost in time in a Pulitzer Prize-worthy book.
Let it be known that I will move to Portland for Powell’s. Fact.
