About the Author
A native Oregonian, Ann Smith has lived in Portland since 2000. She proudly owns the local PR firm A.wordsmith, and avidly enjoys the city’s culinary scene, sports teams, and outdoor patios where cider is served on sunny days.
Check out the book 100 Things to Do in Portland, Oregon Before You Die (Second Edition!), by our very own Ann Smith:
“In this second edition of 100 Things to Do in Portland, Oregon Before You Die, we’ve added some of our favorite old haunts as well as a few newly discovered gems. Whether it’s tried-and-true or up-and-coming, we promise if it’s in here, it’s worth your time. We Portlanders love craft beer, bike lanes, and all things vintage. We pride ourselves on being hipsters, foodies, and major league soccer fans. It’s our goal to represent all facets of the city in this book: from the gardens to the shops and the festivals to the bars. If you’re in Portland on vacation, this collection of greatest hits is sure to get you beyond the typical tourist hot spots. If this is home, we challenge you to uncover something in these pages not yet on your Portland bucket list.”
“A quick and easy guide to some of the best things to do in and around Portland. Well worth it.”
