Everyone thinks it's always raining in Portland. For the most part it's true, but you need to know a few things. First off, the rain doesn't have to slow you down, and it's true, summer offers the best weather. If you are looking for affordable hotels, your best bet is in the winter months when the heavy rain fall tends to deter visitors from coming to the area.
