speaking of hikes..
is portland a pretty walkable town? i mean, once you get into the heart of it? and did you do the light rail much? i'm just wondering whether we should rent a car..if it's anything like new york, i wouldn't bother, since you can walk or transit just about anywhere.

Downtown there is fareless square. It's a good 10 to 12 blocks (maybe more) where all the buses and the MAX is free. It's good for getting around downtown. Portland's entire bus system is just awesome! www.trimet.org shows you times and maps. You can go just about anywhere you want to/need to in the Portland area.
Willamette Falls... Very pretty but would take a car to get there.
Saturday Market... it's on Saturday and Sunday. Under the burnside bridge. Great for people watching. Has live music and (sometimes) weird street preformers.

~When I first moved here I was going to spend a year here and move back... that was 11 almost 12 years ago now. ;)
