Across the Columbia River from the state of Washington lies the largest city in Oregon. In fact, Portland and Seattle vie for the largest city in the Pacific Northwest. Locals will tell you that their native Portland is far more relaxed than its rival to the north, but that doesn’t mean travelers will want for fine foods, culture, or amenities. The craft beer and farm-to-table culinary scenes have put Portland on the bucket list of foodies worldwide. And artisanal roasted coffee beans? They’re enough to drive your caffeine-loving taste buds to drool.
Great eats aren’t the only things Portland has to offer. Dig a little deeper and you’ll discover a history that includes being discovered by fellow explorers Lewis and Clark. Of course, things really started to get interesting when a pair of settlers named it after Portland, Maine, in a coin toss. Little did they know their budding town would far surpass the original Portland in size, fame, and population. Discover more local lore when you stay at our Portland vacation rentals.
If you’ve ever seen the show “Portlandia,” you know you’re in for some quirky adventures. What you may not know, however, is that you can actually visit Portlandia, the statue. After the Statue of Liberty, she’s the second-largest hammered copper statue in the United States. Plus, she’s just blocks from Market Street Condos by Barsala. Of course, if live people-watching is more your thing, Jamison Square in the Pearl District might be a better place to hang out. Luckily, the Pearl District Condos by Barsala offer the same great accommodations, including a kitchen, living room, and an internet connection that make you feel right at home.
