The cooler months are a great time to dig out your ski gear, grab your favorite coffee mug and head to Portland. Now, the adventure is even more affordable with the Expedia Winter Sale, which lets you save up to 30 percent off your Portland hotel stay.
More than two dozen hotels are on sale from now until the end of February, for travel by March 31. There’s also extra incentive to sample what TIME magazine calls “America’s new food Eden,” compliments of $20 dining certificate valid at tasty restaurants RingSide Steakhouse and Portland Prime.
Looking for an excuse to visit? If the hotel savings, dining certificate and year-round tax-free shopping weren’t enough, Portland is filled with events and festivals during the winter season. In January, the Fertile Ground Festival takes the stage. This 10-day event showcases homegrown, world-premiere plays, readings and performances. In February, the Portland Jazz Festival returns with an impressive lineup under the theme, “Bridges and Boundaries: Jewish & African Americans Playing Jazz Together.” Finally, in March, the Portland Saturday Market and Portland Farmers Market set up their tents for the season, bringing with them artisan crafts and tasty treats in open-air settings.
