If you spend any time in downtown or Northwest Portland, take 15 to 30 minutes to browse the flagship location, just to get a sense of the place’s scale.

I spent four late spring nights in Portland, hitting as many attractions, neighborhoods, and locally owned businesses (definitely not difficult in this part of the world) as I could.

Thanks in part to the generosity of the kind folks at Travel Portland, the city’s excellent travel bureau, I was able to check out many of the budget-friendly spots listed below.

And, perhaps most importantly, Oregon is one of the few states with no sales tax.

Depending on what you’re used to in your hometown, this alone could cut anywhere from 5% to 10% off the cost of your discretionary spending here.

Today, the West Coast’s long-running tech boom is transforming Portland into a vibrant back office for big Seattle and Silicon Valley companies.

There’s also evidence it’s emerging as a startup hub in its own right, as increasingly aggressive angel investors and venture capitalists seek opportunities outside larger West Coast markets. Like Seattle, Portland’s population is swelling with transplants from other parts of the country and world – notably California, which has been sending economic refugees north for years.

Portland, Oregon, is the Pacific Northwest’s second-largest city – the anchor of a metropolitan area some two million people strong.

Just don’t confuse it with Portland, Maine, its older and much smaller East Coast namesake.

But you don’t need to find “Portlandia” funny, or consider yourself hip in the slightest, to have a good time here.

Portland is a beautiful, cosmopolitan place with the cultural amenities of a major coastal metropolis and the laid-back ethos of a small Northwestern town.

The attractions and points of interest that I didn’t have time to visit have been thoroughly researched (again, thanks in part to Travel Portland) and won’t blow a hole through your travel budget.
