I'm going on a brief getaway to Portland next month. I was looking into some of those travel guide books you see at bookstores, but I figured I'd just ask the good folks here: Is there anything that I absolutely must try or do or eat during the five days that I'll be there? I talking about stuff that is unique to Portland or that you feel is necessary to get a feel for what Portland is like.
I'm not renting a car and I'll be staying downtown, so places that are accessible by foot or taxi are preferable. Also, nothing too touristy.
A couple friends of mine said that I had to try lobster rolls while I'm there.
