Portland has it's own twist on the hipster oasis. After perusing the 2016 AIA Portland Homes Tour, including the modernist Doppelgänger house, we chowed down on juicy BBQ and sipped Sweet tea with Bourbon at the homey hot spot The People's Pig. Later that night there was a treat in store. Only in Portland could you find a 1920s home complete with rooms full of retro flocked wall paper converted into the Beech Street Parlor. Try the mouth-watering lime margaritas and Fettuccine w/ arugula pesto! Then it was off to Canon Beach for some outstanding views and awesome tide pool gazing. I'm starting to think the locals' dire warnings of constant rain are meant to keep us San Franciscans out!
