My fellow students and I will be traveling to Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; and Vancouver, BC this September to see the sights, and learn something (or drink). I was hoping that someone from any of those cities could give me some ideas as to what we MUST see, or if there are any tours, or the like that we should do while there. Since many of us are looking at graduate school, or are already in it, we are looking to talk with professors at the Universities surrounding these cities as well. (Any one we should stop at?)
Any help that would give me some place to tell these people to go. This is our yearly trip and we try to make it as educational as possible, but other things are always good to know about as well. Last year we went to Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA, and the year prior we went to NYC. Any help would be great. Thanks.
