If you are in the city over the weekend, don't miss the Portland Saturday Market

Portland is a great city to just walk around, it's very eclectic. Besides it has pretty good public transport for a city of its size.

Aside from ME, Depends on your time and interest.

Walking along N.W. 23rd street has a lot of cool shops.

Powell Book's is a stop.

We now have a completely pointless sky tram, I hear the view is nice.

If your sticking around downtown, light rail is free to ride, gets you most places of interest.

Mt Hood 1 hour to the east

Multnomah Falls 35 minutes to the east.

Throw me an interest and I can get more specific

Maybe the point is the view though I somehow doubt that.

What's the point of the Eiffel tower?. The view is very nice.

Hey Kate, if you are reading this. Thank you. It's sad that some of our most clever posters are so scarce these days.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
