Hi! I'm going to be in Portland in a couple of weeks visiting friends in the Grant Park neighborhood. I'm staying with them, but I have two days where they're at work and I will be entertaining myself (which I am looking forward to). I have access to a car and the only thing I am certain of is that I will be spending 1/2 a day at Powell's. Is there anything else I shouldn't miss? [more inside]
I'm taking my first trip to the Pacific Northwest! Most of the itineraries I've seen are for a 9-10 day trip, but we only have 8 days, counting departure day. Trying to make the most of our time without cramming in too much. What are your must-sees for 8 days? We are likely sticking to Oregon & Washington, and want to see a mix of cities and coastline.

My wife and I honeymooned in Portland, OR in 2012 and loved it. We just did the city. We are looking at planning another PNW getaway this year (up to a week) and are wondering what to do/where to go next? We like city stuff (restaurants, culture, walking, breweries, wineries) as well as being in the outdoors and hiking. What would you recommend for us? There are so many good options, we are having a hard time deciding!

Am planning a solo trip early Sept to Portland then heading up to Washington and renting a car (Seattle?) possibly by Amtrak, with a stop at the Gorges). Have a place to stay in Portland 4-5 days. I am thinking I will need a 2-3 day car rental in Portland, and 4-5 day car rental in Washington. And I should be hitting Washington just before Labor Day weekend- which means I should book accommodations now! [more inside]
