Powell's is a huge bookstore located in lovely Portland, Oregon. In fact, it is the largest bookstore in the US (world?). It is named after the man who started & runs the store. The main store takes up one city block, between West Burnside & NW Couch Streets, and 10 and 11 Avenues. The Portland Streetcar makes it easy to reach Powell's, running north on 10 Av and south on 11 Av, or take Tri-met bus 20.

In addition to the main store, Powell's has several branches in the area. Don't forget powells.com! New & used books, free shipping or pickup at a nearby store.

Powell's is a Portland institution, tourist attraction, and a super bookstore. No visit to Portland is complete without a visit to the "city of books."
