Looking for a cheap place to stay for me and a buddy

by dew1989

Me and a buddy (both 17) are comming to Portland in late october for a concert. Anyone know of a cheap but decent place to stay, kinda near the McMenamins Crystal Ballroom. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

BTW, will I have trouble because of my age?

I had a friend who stayed at the same hostel and said it was a good one. And the location can't be can all over town from the location.

Check out the White Eagle near Russell Street. Cool place and also a McMenamins -- (owners of the Crystal too). It is right on the MAX so you don't need a car if you are headed to places close-in. Rooms are $40 at the low end if you don't mind sharing a room. It is a historic building, a brothel to be precise!

Good luck!

Travel Tips for Portland

NO Sales TAX!

by machomikemd

What you see is what you get in Portland. Since there’s no sales tax in Oregon, the price you see on an item is the price you pay at the register. So if you buy an $ 15 shirt, then the final price is just $ 15! golly, I should have time to go to the Factory Outlets here! I should return here someday.

Do Not Hit the Cyclists

by mossyfeet

Portland has bike lanes, which are located to the right of the regular car lanes.

Importantly, when you're making a right turn in a car (or parallel parking!), you need to check your right side and your right-hand mirror so you don't run someone over.

Similarly, when you are getting out of the driver's side door after parallel parking, check your left-hand mirror so you don't open your door in front of a cyclist.

When there is no bike lane present, when turning left, or when conditions are unsafe to do otherwise, cyclists have the right to take the main lane. Cyclists will use left and right turn lanes like a car. Bikes are often going much faster than you think!

There are also a couple places to rent bikes in Portland (CityBikes and Waterfront Bicycle Rentals, to name two), which is a great way to get around when the weather's good. In combination with the public transit, you can even get up the steeper hills without breaking a sweat!

Beer, Coffee and Bread

by archan4698

Hmmm, Portland has always been "artsy" I guess, Portland Art Museum recently attracted a Czarist russian art exhibit that had its opening in Portland, then Dallas then the Louve in Paris. And a Japanese, and Ottoman exhibit also passed through.

So I guess that same art enjoyment carries on, cause Portland is known nationally as having some of the best beer around, more small breweries then anywhere in the USA, and lots of variety, amber, dark, porter, stout, etc. Many breweries have tours, but you do have to be 21 to sample the goods:(

If your looking for some food to take with ya on a long trip, like the Train to California or Seattle-Canada, the Pearl Bakery is near the station and its great.
Its located at 102 Northwest 9th Avenue, they sell a variety of european style breads as well as lunch, desserts, etc.

World Cup Coffee 16th and Glisan, also a branch in the pearl district, and Park place cafe are my two favorite coffee places. Park place/ave cafe is just off the campus of PSU and on Park ave.

There is also coffee people, with stores around portland, they add an extra shot to your latte/mocha, etc and have tasty beans. The one on NW 23rd often has live performers, and if you have alil talent you might be able to talk to them to let ya play for tip money in the evening.

The northern boarder of Portland is the Columbia River which is the number #2 spot in the world for windsurfing.
During the summer months you can drive up either side of the river and literally see hundreds of wind surfers or kite surfers in the Gorge.
Truly one of the best places for watersports of this nature.

The Historic Columbia River...

by 10eke

The Historic Columbia River Highway runs along the south side (left bank) of the Columbia River between Troutdale and The Dalles. It is the first scenic highway constructed in the United States. The Vista House at Crown Point marks the dedication of the highway in 1916. From Vista House you get a 'gorgeous' overlook of the Columbia Gorge. As you travel the highway you will pass many smaller and large waterfalls. I don't have a decent picture of the highway, but you can see and find everything you want at the Oregon Department of Transportation Columbia River Highway page
