A classic destination for both tourists and residents alike, this bookstore is part of our city that we would never want to lose.

Portland is loaded with amazing pho places and we simply can't live without them, especially once the cold and rainy weather sets in. Whether you are in the Pho Oregon, Pho Hung 82, Ha VL, or Pho An camp, you know there is a great bowl of pho out there for you waiting to be devoured.
10. Portland Sports
We have the Trailblazers, Timbers, Thorns, and Winterhawks that all draw some serious support from the city. We love our sports teams and can't imagine our city without them in it.
Thankfully, with breweries spread throughout the city, you never will have to live without this, our unofficial drink in Portland. Whether you like sour beers, IPAs, or lagers, Portland has you covered in beer selection, and we would have it no other way.
