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.
