The Amateur Traveler talks to Sean Keener of the BootsNAll travel network about the city of Portland Oregon.
Sean describes the independent character of the city that is expressed in its brewpubs, food carts and hip culture. It is also evident in the famous Powell’s bookstore.
Portland weather has a reputation for being rainy but Sean tells us when to come to Portland. He also tells us where to ride a bike and where to find some good Vegan food. If Vegan is not your style, find out where to find a pork chop over 4 inches thick.
Outside of Portland, Sean tells us about side trips to Mt Hood for skiing, the shore for surfing and the wine country that can all be part of one great day. He also talks about one of the best spots in the world for kite surfing and hiking.
