Chances are if you are in Portland for any length of time you will find yourself looking for something to do indoors. Does it rain everyday in Portland? No! But it does rain a lot. Sometimes for a week straight and sometimes for a month straight. Having lived here for almost 6 years (off and on) we have become acquainted with many fun indoor places for kids.
