NileGuide Expert tip:
If you're visiting Portland, you absolutely must visit Powell's Books. With every book under the sun, this unique and massive bookstore is the pride and joy of Portland.
Powell's Books in Downtown Portland is a great way to spend an entire day in Portland when the weather is not ideal. With four entire floors of books, Powell's is literally the largest bookstore in the United States. In addition to the sheer size, Powell's Books also specializes in unique and rare books. Visit the Rare Book room on the top floor, which houses historically famous antique books. If they don't have a book you want, they will make the effort to find it at another location. Make sure to leave lots of time to explore this immense palace of books- it is one of the top attractions in all of Oregon!
