PORTLAND, Ore. — Despite not starting until — hopefully — sometime in July, summer in Portland was voted No. 1 by Travel + Leisure for seasonal travel destinations.
The ranking listed the Rose City a top vacation spot for its parks and its farmers markets.
Travel + Leisure chose cities based on good weather — and some of the hottest cities ranked lowest. They also looked at family-friendliness, great parks and access to outdoor activities.
The plethora of local produce and food fanatic farmer’s markets in town also helped push Portland to No. 1.
Neighbor to the north Seattle ranked third. And coming in last of the 32 cities — was Phoenix mostly for its average temp of 91 degrees.
