In Portland, what is the weather usually like in late October (that is when my stay begins; its end date is the first few days of November)?
How spread out is Portland? Depending on where you want to go (say, somewhere within the downtown district), is it reasonable to take a pleasant walk out to reach your destination?
Aside from bars and restaurants, what attractions must a visitor to Portland see before they leave? My friend and I are particularly interested in the arts, museums, historic sites, etc. Would any locals happen to know of worthwhile attractions that are a little difficult to find/not exactly popular and thus not often found as recommended spots on travel guides? If so, what are they?
Is there enough to do in Portland alone for a few days? I know it's one of the smaller cities in America, but I've been looking over Google Maps/Street View and the main tourist areas, those being Old Town Portland and the Arts District, seem to be about the size of the downtown district of my small town. If you stray outside of them both, is there anything else in Portland to hold the interest of a visitor?
I'll take as much information as the community here can offer.
