2. Downtown Portland is a holiday dream to walk through.

Most storefronts are dressed from top to bottom with classy-looking Christmas decorations that make the city feel good. You can find a fun activity put on by a local business almost any night of the week. It's a beautiful community, and great for a holiday stroll.
