7 Reasons Planners Won’t Want to Leave Portland, Oregon

7 Reasons Planners Won’t Want to Leave Portland, Oregon

By Anna Dunn, April 11, 2016

Portland, Oregon, has its quirks. It’s in one of only two U.S. states where drivers legally can’t pump their own gas (New Jersey is the other); it has so many food carts, you could chow down at a different cart every day for two years and never eat at the same one twice; and it lays claim to the world’s smallest dedicated park at only 24 inches across.

My recent travels to the American Copy Editors Society conference brought me 2,500 miles across the country from Atlanta to this eclectic (OK, odd) Pacific Northwest city, and I left with a hole in my heart and a profound desire to book a trip back ASAP. If you’re a meeting professional planning an event in Portland, here are seven reasons you may not want to return home after your site visit—or may at least consider extending your stay.
