Mississippi Avenue: The Finest Street in Portland

Posted on by Noah Lederman in Somewhere, United States | Leave a comment

Shopping Mississippi Avenue is Portland's Best Street With cross streets like Failing and Blandena, and a nearby park named Unthank, Portland’s Mississippi Avenue sounds like it would possess the charm of a depressed, mundane road flowing traffic back to downtown remorsefully.

37 Hours in Curacao
The island of Curacao sits outside of the hurricane belt and the tourist belt (as compared to Holland’s other Caribbean islands), though it’s got plenty to offer. While you could easily spend a lifetime there, here at Somewhere Or Bust, we give you at least 37 Hours to experience the best of Curacao, just in case there were any other publications out there brazen enough to recommend travelers to a destination for fewer hours than that.
