    All Portlandia jokes aside (trust us, we love 'em, too!) — there is something about the Pacific Northwest’s star city that artisans, inventors, crafters, and local-loving denizens can't get enough of. It's just a special place, living beyond its hype, and after spending some unseasonably sunny time in PDX, we can totally see why it's “where young people go to retire."

    Until that day comes, though, we're working hard to give you the ultimate guide to the city so you can hit up all the best indie establishments in one go. Luckily, Portland is only a short plane ride (or a very, very long drive) away from S.F., so it's the perfect weekend jaunt.

    And, to inspire your journey, we scoured every inch of the city to bring you the best shops, restaurants, bars, and places to stay. It really wasn’t hard, considering the cocktail and culinary scenes are dynamite and the retail offerings had our wallets begging for mercy. Our advice: Pack those bags, brush up on that Portlandia trivia, and book your ticket, stat! You can thank us later.

The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
