I will be visiting Portland mid May. I have a daughter who lives in Forks Washington and normally I fly into Seattle and drive over to see her but this trip I am flying into Portland. I have always wanted to go to Portland! I was planning on bringing my 19 year old son and he cancelled on me today! So now I’m on my own and am re thinking my itinerary!
I would love some advice!
My trip so far is- Fly in late to Portland, stay one night by the airport. Wake up early and head to The Waffle Window (is there one by the airport?)
Next, I’m leaving for Forks. After 3 1/2 days in Forks Im headed down the Coast to Portland.
I will have 2 nights and two full days in Portland.
Some things I want to see are- the food trucks at 10th and Alder, The Rose Garden and the Japanese Garden, Hawthorne neighborhood and The Pearl neighborhood, I am planning on eating at Pok Pok and The Little Pigeon and food trucks.
On Tuesday after lunch I am headed to The Columbia Gorge. And then head to the airport for my late night flight.
So my main question is where should I stay that would make it easy to walk or take public transportation to where I want to go? I don’t mind walking! I have traveled on my own a lot but I want a safe nice hotel. Any suggestions and ideas would be great!
