    Hello everyone. Im going to Portland for the first time with a few friends at the end of August and we are looking into getting an Airbnb. We won't be renting a car and plan on getting around mostly by foot and Uber. Does anyone have recommendations on good areas/sections of the city to stay in?

    Yeah NW would be good. You could even walk to places like Powell’s or Ground Kontrol from there. Plus like countless pretty cool bars.

    Alternatively some of those inner SE neighborhoods might work, like Sunnyside or Buckman are close to a lot of cool places.

    Also if it’s just getting around during the day maybe consider public transit, it’s super easy to pick up and will save money on Uber’s

    Thanks for the tips. From what I was reading online NW seemed to be a popular spot. Im very excited to check it all out.

    You look like bad news, I gotta have you Prestigious

    Last time I got an airbnb I stayed by NW 23rd and it was perfect. Wish I could remember the host! Anywhere near salt n straw and elephants delicatessen with a walk or quick ride to powells and the Roxy is good to me!

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    Agree with everyone else on NW. Super pretty neighborhood, lots of things to do, and probably the best spot if you don't have a car (walking or taking MAX/streetcar will get you anywhere else from there).

    I know it's not a very local "portland" thing but also City Target is legit better than other targets. Sometimes it has less stock cause it's not like a big super target and its all squished into that lil building but I swear their clothes and home decor are cuter than other targets. Tho on the downside I feel like their cheap random goods aisle is worse than other targets



    Sidenote I'm gonna be in Salem for nearly a month cause of work and aside from del taco bc I am trash I got no plans so if anyone knows that area for suggestions! I only ever pass thru

    Hey I live in Salem! There's some chill spots downtown, Archive is very hipster, Coin Jam is our barcade and usually pretty chill. The Space in West Salem is a vegan basement bar that holds shows most nights and is a really cool place (shameless plug, my band is playing there July 15th I think. It's us then some shitty metal bands)

    If you have specific questions let me know!

    The best comedy show I've ever performed outside of MT was in Salem. Stayed in the KOA afterwards haha.
