Four Days in Portland
My husband and I will be traveling to Portland in the beginning of July. We will be staying at The River Place Hotel. It is the last leg of a two week trip (4 days in Boulder/4 in Jackson Hole//4 in Portland). We are in our mid 40's, love to run, love to eat and enjoy cities, walking and exploring. Our traveling philosophy is "less is more" in terms of not trying to do too much in any given day. The goal is to combine lots of outdoor activity with a good amount of down-time, wandering, great meals, etc. While we'd like to spend a few days just in the city, we are also interested in a couple of day trips. We'd like to take a drive to the coast (with a possible stop at a winery either on the way there or back) and then spend another day either hiking or kayaking around the Columbia River Gorge. We figure this will leave us two full days and three nights to explore Portland. Does this sound feasible? Also, any suggestions for routes, places to stop, great lunch spots, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
