Visiting Portland: a single ma with a 1 & 4 yr old
We are staying at the Red Lion Convention Center. (Single mom & 5 y.o. plus me & my brood; we hotwired and got the room for $54, word!) Some things we want to do include definitely hitting up the Children's Museum (son hearts dinosaurs), curious about an easy walk/hike in the area (see your site has resources, excellent), exploring the Pearl District (Powell's, Jamison Square, Sip & Kranz).According to Google Maps from our hotel to Jamison Square it's only 1.4 miles (!) but is it a walkable 1.4, or too busy (I have an excellent street warrior-like double)? Not sure how realistic MAX is when schlepping 2 kiddos, you know? Are our destinations walkable? Or drive & park somewhere & walk? Not sure about strollers on MAX.
