Downtown Portland in the daytime is a small colorful city full of culture and adventure. It is easy to fill your days in this bustling city, whether your passions lie in exploring the history of Old City, or the modern art galleries of the Pearl District. On rainy days, native Portland folk wander in Powell's Books for entire afternoons. At night, Portland transforms into a hip, energetic city with an amazingly diverse nightlife. Although Downtown Portland is small, its commitment to diversity and the arts have created a cultural mecca that attracts people of all kinds. If this is your first visit to Portland, Downtown is surely worth a gander. On the weekends, be sure not to miss the Saturday Market, which is a show case for the largest collection of Portland artists.
