I have a megalist of things to do as a first time visitor to portland. I'm now at the point where I need to cut down on some activities--I realize I can't cram everything in four days! So if you don't mind giving me your valuable two cents (and maybe even suggestions on which activities make sense to do on the same day given locale--which I'm naturally clueless about) I'd appreciate it!
Powell's City of Books,
Pearl District, Art in the Pearl festival
Pioneer Square, love rally on saturday
Northwest (Nob Hill),
The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother,
Lloyd Center Mall since i'm within walking distance from it...
Mississippi Ave--not sure what is there, what to see exactly...i've just heard several people mention this area
Mission Theater & Pub for dinner and a movie
Buffalo Exchange, one across from Powell's and one in Hawthorne, not sure which is better.
OMSI (I definitely need to see the Robots exhibit!)
Museum of Velvet Paintings
Darcelle Pagent at the Convention Center on saturday
Portland Art Museum, biennial and north wing grand opening
Oregon History Center
Karaoke from Hell at Dante's Caffe (i've never seen "live" karaoke before)
Places to eat:
Space room lounge
and then I'm going to "steal" a few suggestions from the previous TA post on Microbreweries in the area.
so...what should stay or go...or can i do it all!?
