IMG_2761

These pictures were taken at one of my FAVORITE places in Portland, Oregon. These were taken at Powell’s bookstore, the largest new/used independent bookstore IN THE WORLD. There is more than one branch of Powell’s, but this one, the City of Books, takes up a whole city block. I’m big on books, so this place is sort of like Disneyland for me (especially once I found the archaeology section.) The books, especially the used ones, run pretty cheap. The store also offers a wide range of rare books. Powell’s, fortunately, has a map layout, so if you are looking for a specific section it shouldn’t be too hard to find. If you aren’t looking for something specific, I would recommend just wandering around (especially if you have a lot of free time on your hands). Powell’s is very cool, and i’d highly recommend a visit to anyone who’s in the Portland Area.IMG_2756

At The Market

This picture was taken at Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon. The market is a great place to hang out, people watch, shop, take pictures, and eat a variety of foods. It’s a great weekend event, it happens on both Saturday and Sunday, and it takes place in a nice little area right near the waterfront. The Market has lots of interesting things to shop for, most of which is handmade. I like the market because it’s a great place to just hang out, and all the vendors are friendly. It’s a great traditional Portland event, and I’d highly suggest a visit!

Cityscape

This picture was taken from one of the many bridges in Portland, Oregon. Portland is a cool city with a lot to offer, it’s not too big, or too fast paced, and it’s in pretty close proximity to some very cool natural areas. The city is nice to just walk or drive around, and it’s got some very cool and quirky places to visit. If you’re planning a visit to Portland make sure Voodoo doughnuts and Powell’s City of Books are both places on your list of sites to visit!

Portland Waterfront

This picture was taken at the Waterfront in Portland, Oregon. The waterfront is a nice area, it has a lot of nice, higher end hotels that face the river. Personally, I love seeing a city at night, it seems like a great big glass forest of skyscrapers, and all the lights just look like stars. The water in Portland gives off great reflection too, and walking along the side of the river provides for a great view.
