Hello, the Hubby and I are planning a 1-week stay in Portland this August. I love it there and my goal is to get him to fall in-love too. We plan on exploring different parts of the city. Through a vacation rental site I found 2 appealing condos. One on SW Waterfront drive (right in front of the street car) and the other on SW 10th Ave near PSU. The waterfront is a beautiful highrise with amazing night views and the downtown more vintage, but possibly more "in the middle" of things. My husband was concerned with the waterfront being industrial after looking at a map, but for me I liked the idea of morning walks on the waterfront with the availability of getting to downtown quickly on the street car. To be honest, I am not too sure if the PSU area is even a nice area of downtown. As you can tell, we are having trouble deciding and would appreciate any local insight. Thanks! Much love.
