Portland Vacations: The Quirky Capital
“Keep Portland weird” is the city’s motto and Portland’s independent spirit is reflected by the outdoorsy types who enjoy its parks, and by the bookish types who browse Powell’s City of Books, the largest independent bookstore in the world. People-watch at the city’s food carts, relax at a cozy coffee shop, or rent a bike and explore the hip Pearl District. With Mount Hood as its backdrop, nature is never far away in Portland. Let your Liberty Travel consultant can match you with a Portland vacation package that’s just your style.
