Though close in proximity to Seattle, Portland has an entirely unique and different feel, making it the perfect location for a weekend getaway (whether you’re heading south from Seattle or elsewhere). As always, Portland’s interest in craft provides innovative restaurants, cafes, hotels and museums with each new visit. Whether it be the hospitality of a warm atmosphere and public coffee brewing demonstrations at Coava, or insight into Japanese garden culture and architecture at the newly renovated Portland Japanese Gardens, the extra care put into the craft of each cultural element is entirely evident. Here’s our 2017 roundup of Portland’s newest and greatest modern gems.
