Jake’s Grill, located in the Sentinel, offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a menu that focuses on American fare. Breakfast is a treat – the pancakes are among the fluffiest and tastiest we’ve seen in a while.

Portland has a thriving food truck scene and the Whole Bowl’s bowls of rice, cheddar, avocado, olives, red and black beans, cilantro, and the addictive tali sauce are tasty and filling.

At night, Jakeknife, also in the Sentinel, is a friendly bar run by the team that brought the city two other popular establishments, Bye and Bye and Dig a Pony.

In Astoria, try Baked Alaska, located on a pier on the Columbia River. It offers what it calls “new American” cuisine and also serves local root beer made with vanilla and honey from the Steelhead Brewery, which will make a refreshing and excellent accompaniment to your meal.


Portland International Airport, located approximately 12 miles (19 kilometers) north of downtown Portland, provides easy access to the city. All of the major airlines – American, United, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, among others – offer flights and the airport is a hub for Alaska Airlines.

For surface travel, the city’s Union Station offers convenient rail service with Amtrak’s Empire Builder train providing a direct link to Chicago.

Once in Portland, bicycles are a popular way of getting around and the city recently started its bike share program, with orange bicycles available for use by the trip, by the day, and by the year.
