    7 Things You Should Know Before You Go To Portland

    Portland is without a doubt on of our favorite cities to visit, and there are many reasons why. From its beautiful natural scenery, amazing cafés, eating fresh seafood, biking around and exploring new neighborhoods, even enjoying the regular rain. It has a lot to offer, Portland is a great city. Whether you are looking for a solo adventure or want to explore with your family, these things will help you prepare for your visit.

    Ready to explore the Pacific Northwest's most populous city? We have listed things that will help you plan your trip to Portland, Oregon.

    1. What to wear in Portland

    Just like in other cities, you can wear anything in Portland, but there's certainly a vibe to the local fashion. No one worries about what you're wearing. People in this city accept everyone's peculiarities. You will see people in t-shirts, especially tourists, like you, or locals wearing city shirt inspired apparel such as our Portland Essential T-Shirt and shorts. 

    2. Portlanders prefer to shop locally

    When visiting Portland, you will notice many locally owned businesses that only sell locally produced goods, such as clothing stores, grocery stores, and breweries. As a tourist, you can shop at their local store to support them. We love this about Portland! We are completely committed to our philosophy of locally inspired design and sourced apparel.

    3. Portland gets a lot of rain

    You'll notice how green everything is as you walk around the city. This is due to Portland's frequent rain. So pack the appropriate clothing with you, like the Portland Essential Hoodie to match with our Signature Joggers to avoid upsetting your trip with the weather, and you will still enjoy the beautiful city like a local.

    4. Portland's traffic is bad

    One of the things you need to know before traveling to Portland is the city traffic. Because the city is such an ideal place to live, many people chose to relocate here, causing significant traffic congestion throughout the city. This is a big commuter city. We'd encourage you to consider staying downtown and walking to enjoy the beautiful city without the headache of a commute.

    5. Portland prioritizes living an eco-friendly lifestyle

    Portlanders believe in the importance of sustainability, so if you visit this city, take care not to leave your trash anywhere. You'll notice trash cans arranged by material and marked as you walk around the city, such as paper, glass, plastic, compost, and so on. We love the cities commitment to sustainability! Do you know we are committed to the same principles?

    We continue our commitment to sustainability with every new collection. We prepare one-to-one orders to ensure that our customers get the shopping experience they deserve and we create ZERO WASTE. Our commitment doesn’t waiver in building a brand that celebrates the cities we honor and the people who love them. 

    6. You can always find more parking

    Unlike many other cities, you will find more regularly available parking in Portland. If you plan to drive around the city, you won't have to worry about finding parking, but there is something you should be aware of. At 8 a.m., street parking fees will be implemented and will end at 7 p.m. and are free on Sundays until 1 pm.

    7. The Best time to visit

    To help you plan your next perfect trip to Portland, plan it in the summer. Summer is the best time to visit the city. Summer begins in June and lasts until September, but as stated above, always be ready for the rain.

    Portland, Oregon is an extraordinary place that you can easily fall in love with the charm of the city.
