PORTLAND LIST

Luke and I often get emails with questions about what to do in Portland; where to eat, what to see, where to stay, etc. We've compiled a list of our favorite "go-to" Portland eateries as well as fun things to do in and out of the city. You can usually find us at any of these places on the weekends (keep checking back - this list will update as there are always new restaurants opening up around the city).

  1. I highly recommend trying out Ava Gene's in Portland. It's one of the best restaurants I've ever been to!

    1. It's funny that you mention this because we actually ate here for the first time the day you commented on this :)
