Hi there, I am meeting up with at friend for a few days in the beginning of July. We were thinking of staying in downtown Portland but are open to suggestions. Nothing is on the itinerary yet, but we would like to explore local eats and breweries. We like to hike as well so we might just rent a car for the day. Since we are going to be there for the 4th of July I would appreciate any suggestions of where to go to view fireworks. We are only in Portland for 3 nights so we would like to get in as much as possible.
