Finalizing our trip to Portland during July 1-5th. Looking for a hotel/motel mainly to rest and grab a quick bite to eat before heading out for a day filled with adventures. So any suggestions would be welcome. Three adults (parents and adult child) traveling together, so will share a room. We don't have to stay in downtown, surrounding areas like Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, et al are options. Flying in and out of PDX
Our trip will of course be filled will travels to coast, Mt Hood, returning to hotel/motel each night.
Any suggestions on 4th of July must see/do? Fireworks, BBQ, parades, etc.
We are not foodies or wine connoisseurs, but enjoy an ice cold beer, pizza, Mexican food with a tasty margarita, ribs, you know more casual.
So any suggestions on any of the above would be welcome and we would be grateful for any advice. Thanks so much.
