Farewell to Winter in Portland, Ore.
While March still sees cold temperatures in and a fair amount of rain in Portland, tourist crowds are scant and you're likely to find good deals on accommodation. Plus, Portland is teeming with ways to warm up and escape the drizzle (coffee, anyone?). March is Portland Dining Month, with top eateries around town offering three course set menus for $29, and the Portland Timbers soccer team will be kicking off their season with games at downtown's Providence Park.
