If your trip to Portland is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a bit empty, we can give you a helping hand.
You'll have to roll out of bed early if you want to see all the notable attractions that this place has to offer. Pioneer Courthouse Square and Portland State University are no-brainers. Tom McCall Waterfront Park and Providence Park shouldn't be overlooked either.
Plan a stop at Portland Center for the Performing Arts. It's one attraction you'll usually find on many visitors' must-do lists. If you still have some space on your schedule, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and Antoinette Hatfield Hall will keep you on the go, as well.
We know you want to see what your new ride can do. How about a day trip out to Salem? Just 43 miles away, roll down those windows and enjoy the wind in your hair on the drive there. See the sights beginning with Bush House Museum, Saturday Market and Chemeketa Community College. Locals will also likely point you toward Hood River, 59 miles away. If you can only find time for one thing here, make sure it's Mount Hood Railroad. (But we're also big fans of Indian Creek Golf Course and Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum.)
If you're going to Portland for work-related reasons, there's a good chance you'll be visiting some convention centers. With your own set of wheels, you're sure to arrive on time. Here are some of the biggest and the best:
Here are our suggestions on how to hop behind the wheel of a rental car with some savings in your pocket:
Some travelers find weaving through traffic in big cities a bit challenging. But in a small car like a mini or compact, cruising those Portland streets will be a cinch. Prefer to spend your days discovering the surrounding forests? Take a look at our range of SUVs. With plenty of cargo space and power under the hood, these larger rides will make those long, scenic drives even more unforgettable. Ticking off all the attractions and activities that Portland is renowned for has never been easier with your own wheels.
You'll be happy to hear that there's a wide variety of both economy and luxury vehicles to rent in Portland. What you end up going with depends on your funds and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles offer unparalleled mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick up a high-end SUV, or perhaps a flashy medium-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you just need something to zip around town in as efficiently as possible, you're better off choosing a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
