Looking for your next quirky weekend getaway? Look no further than Portland, Oregon. With plenty of flights out of the LA area that serve Stumptown (Jet Blue currently has $97 fares out of Long Beach directly to PDX) and more than 900 downtown hotel rooms stylish stays are available at budget prices.

Portland has a vibrant downtown, pretty residential neighborhoods, ultra green ambitions and countless brewpubs, coffeehouse and independent book stores. With a small-city feel and a perfectly walkable urban core, Portland is an excellent spot to while away a weekend (plus some!)

Tool around the city’s many trails and paths with Pedal Bike Tours – try the Oregon Brewery Trail Tour, and sample some of the breweries that make Portland “Beervana” or spend a few hours browsing the bookshelves of Powell’s. Whatever you decide, I’m sure you’ll agree that Portland positively rocks.
