I love playing "tourist" in my own town. Yes, it can be bothersome having "real" tourists everywhere but why shouldn't I be able to enjoy everything Portland has to offer as well?
When I moved here (2 1/2 years ago) I created a "Bucket List" of Portland (area) things I wanted to do before I left (whenever that might be).
Some of my favorite "tourist" spots that I've been to so far are:
Lan Su Chinese Garden
The Big Pink Tour
Going to an Oregon Casino (next month we'll be celebrating my sisters' birthdays at Chinook Winds) and the Sea Lion Caves.
Do you have a favorite "Tourist Spot" in your town that you can't help but love?
