Road Trip 2017: Hunting for Classic Cars | Days 4-8
Ashland, Oregon is a really quaint small town. It holds an annual Shakespeare Festival with 2 million visitors. The whole downtown area has construction going on for this event. As an Los Angeles resident , it amazes me how friendly everyone is. I guess we are just jaded coming from LA. We next drove to Portland, Oregon and spent a few days there to check out the city. We hit all the tourist land markets: Voodoo Doughnuts, Chinatown, Powell Books, Nike, Lake Owego, Mother’s Restaurant, Downtown Food Carts, etc. It was alot of fun. After a few days of Portland , we were ready to take the 4 hour drive to Seattle, Washington. While Portland had a more small town feel, Seattle felt like Los Angeles. It rained the whole time but it was a city I could see myself living in.
