Last week, Logo (LGBTQ cable network) announced Portland as “Sexiest Spot” for its third annual New Now Next travel awards. The panel of global travel experts determines the best up and coming destinations and hotels. Added this year, were writers from Lonely Planet, New York Magazine, Travel & Leisure, NY Dailey News and Town and Country Travel. There were two new categories of the awards also added this year; “Favorite Travel TV Show” and “New Now Next Destination”. Our unique city won the newest category.
“This boho-sexy hipster/foodie mecca doesn’t just feed your tummy. It hits below the belt, too!…I love me some flannelled lumberjacks. And all that wood!
