The gift that keeps on giving all year long
Do you have someone who is impossible to shop for? I have a few on my list, too. One of the best and easiest gifts to give is a Portland membership, annual pass or subscription. Most attractions in Portland offer memberships, or you can find fun subscriptions that support our local businesses. There are also annual outdoor passes for the hiker in your life.
Here is a roundup of some Portland memberships and subscriptions I have found with prices and links to purchase. Did I miss any? Let me know is the comments section below!
