I'll be in flying into Portland (Oregon) a week from Tuesday (the 25th), and will be leaving Sunday the 30th. I've got some ideas for things to do while I'm there, and I'm staying with my cousin, who has a few things planned I'm sure. But since I have a handful of readers who might be in the know, where should I be sure to go while I'm in Portland? Also, any local legends I should check out while I'm there? Leave a note in the comments. Many thanks for your help.

Came across your blog by hitting the 'next blog' button and since I am in Portland, I felt obliged to comment! If you were staying a week longer I would suggest you hit the Portland Rose Festival, which is a big deal downtown at Waterfront Park in the exact area that you have pictured. There is alway music playing there by local musicians. Sorry, but I don't know too much about the local music scene to suggest to you. But I would reccomend if you like donuts to hit Voodoo donuts. If you like books, go to Powell's book store. Portland is know for it's street food so stop by any of the food carts you may pass by while strolling around down town. If you like grilled cheese, you should try the Grilled Cheese Grill. It is a school bus converted into a steet vender cart that makes all kinds of different grilled cheese sandwiches! I hope you enjoy your stay, and I am sorry about all the rain!
