11 Small Towns Around Portland Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Sometimes it is nice to get away and live a slower life, even if just for the day. While Portland still has a small-town feel compared to other big cities, a change of pace is always nice when life gets overwhelming. These 10 small cities and towns surrounding us are much smaller and have a whole different feel than being in the city, making them the perfect escape when you need a break.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
