Summer Has Finally Come to Portland

On July 10, 2012 by David Krause

The rains have finally gone and Summer has come! That means it’s time for the locals to show some skin and blind everyone for a few months. But it also means there is more to do than sit inside, drinking coffee and reading books in Powell’s (not to say that isn’t fun). It stays light out until 9:30pm and warm until well after bars close. There are street fairs, movies in the park, summer festivals of food, beer, and music. With so much to do in Portland this Summer you couldn’t possibly be bored.


Summer is the rare time when you have the luxury to just walk or bike around Portland without the fear of being rained on. The trails are dry enough to walk on without ruining your shoes.¬†Farmer’s markets are seemingly everywhere and make an excellent snack while on you walk or bike.
