If you have never been to Portland, Oregon, this can be the first thing on your "Why to Visit Portland" list: Powell's City of Books. It is one of the biggest bookstores in the world, independently owned and operated in the Pearl District. It's incredible - more than a million new, used and rare books fill an entire city block, 3 stories high. I get lost. And love every minute of it.
