You may have watched an episode of Portlandia, heard raves about Powell’s bookstore, or read about trends going off here (big beards, pickling, food trucks, microbrews, knitting, DIY)—all of which make for a retro-hip weekend escape. Eat at a different locavore restaurant for every single meal—and bike between each one. Stay at a schoolhouse-turned-bar-hotel-and-movie-house, the Kennedy School. Shop vintage. And sip local roasts from Ristretto, Coava, Sterling, Heart, and Water Avenue (not to mention the ever-more-ubiquitous Stumptown).
