Food, flowers and small business magic all happening in Portland this Spring…..
March is Portland Dining Month
$33 for a 3 course meal at over 100 Portland restaurants? Yes, that’s happening the entire month of March. Book your stay at one of our houses, and receive $33 off your booking. That will pay for you to eat your way through our amazing culinary city!
Can it get any better? Well yes it does, Portland Dining Month donates money to the Oregon Food Bank for each reservation made through the OpenTable links on Travel Portland’s website. So head there make a reservation, eat, eat, eat and feel good about it all.

Where to see the beauty of Spring Flowers?
Walking around Portland in Spring is magical with all of the flowers blooming. Two of our favorite places to witness the colors are at the: Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival & LanSu Chinese Gardens. The Tulip Festival is about 30 minutes from Portland. It is the perfect place to take family photos. So come dressed in your Spring best for photo fun. The Chinese Gardens make for a great hour or so visit while exploring the westside of the city. There is a stunning tea house inside the garden to sit, sip and take all the beauty in. To see the stunning Portland Cherry Blossom- Portland Parent has some great suggestions of where to go to see the pink flowers hanging. You will wonder if you are in Portland or Japan, it is that stunning.
Small Business Power
Together with our neighbors on Alberta Street we have formed, Block 14, a small business group to help build community, give a sense of place and belonging to our neighbors, and contribute to non profits. I am proud of the work we have done most recently making a donation to NXNE community health center from our winter holiday party. Mark your calendar for our annual Block Party set for Sunday July 14th, 2019.
