Biggest and best bookstore ever - new, used and historic. 6 floors I think? Across from. Starbucks and their own great espresso. You can easily spend a day.
A massive independent bookstore where you can find new, used, and rare books. The West Burnside location is the flagship, but if you're looking for something more low-key, there's an East Side outpost on Hawthorne as well.

World famous bookstore ... its HUGE! So many areas to explore, you can linger for an entire day looking at books and sipping coffee :)
Famous for it being the largest independent bookstore. Even if you don't like books, you'll find this place amazing. There is a coffee shop on-prem. I love the photography section... one of the best collection of photobooks; but that's just me. You'll find something here for every interest.
“The Portland Art Museum was founded in 1892 and is the seventh oldest museum in the country. The museum has become famous around the world because of its permanent collection that has more than 42,000 pieces in it. For history buffs there are plenty of historic art pieces on display. There are many pieces that have been collected from the native people of North America as well as a large collection of English silver. The campus that the museum sits on also has the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art which is well worth taking a look at.”
“A top attraction in Portland. Feels like you are in Japan once you get into the gardens. Must see if you are looking for some zen. ”
“Forest park offers a plethora of hiking trails, biking paths, mountain biking trails, unique vistas of the city and Cascade Mountain range. I enjoy the longer hikes that end up at Skyway Tavern for horseshoes and ping pong. The Southeastern part of the park is close to fun shops and a variety of food and drink options around NW 23rd and Thurman Ave.”
“Beautiful grounds that are free to walk, not to mention the view view of Portland from above. You can hike here from Forest Park or just drive up to the parking lot!”
