Welcome to PortlandWiki, a city wiki for Portland, Oregon that anyone can edit. We aim to provide a comprehensive reference for anything and everything in the area. You've caught us early in the project. Poke around and check back from time to time and see how we're doing. If you want to help out: register an account, explore, and add things you think are useful. Otherwise, check back in a bit and see if the dust has settled.
We meet at WikiWednesdays, please come by if you're curious what direction we're heading in.

Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens and the Pacific Coast are all within a two hour drive from Portland. These are all great places to be during the few months of the year when it is not raining - basically, July 4th - October 4th.
Where To Eat in Portland
Visit Produce Row on 4th Street for a variety of yummy dining, and check out the Horse Brass Pub for an unusual English experience. Hubers Café is a Portland tradition, but Carafe, ClarkLewis, and the Sinju Sushi also cater to the hipster crowd. The west side has a variety of steak houses, but vegetarians might prefer the Vegetarian House or Paradox Cafe. Voodoo Doughnut is a must for your creepy sugar fix. Restaurants
