I tend to leave my milestone set to where ever I am leveling. In the 30's that's usually Evendim. I know you can get to Bree pretty easy from most places in Evendim but sometimes just using the port to Rivendell was easier. Even today if my milestones are on cool down I'll still use the Rivendell port.

I agree though that unless you are a scholar, or into RP, the port to Rivendell doesn't do much for you these days. With the exception of Bree, and maybe the hobbits Shire port, I could say the same for the other racial port skills. When the game was new and young they came in very handy. Now, especially since you can get into instances from anywhere, they have less use. I would love to see another racial port for each though. Elves could get one to Lorien. Dwarves to Moria. Men to Galtrev or some place in Rohan. Not sure what you'd do for hobbits though.
This past month I took advantage of the "2 weeks free of VIP". Many of my toons headed off to grind deeds in the only zones in Eriador I haven't previously purchased, Angmar and the Misty Mountains.
Ports out of worm dens and dungeons that got you close to a swift travel route were in demand, multiple cool-down times per hour. Humans were at a slight disadvantage since all races earn their racial port to Bree. Elves did indeed have a slight edge as the Rivendell stable is rich in swift travel routes and Hobbits and Dwarfs are one or two connection hubs away.
Of course the shoes are on the other foot for festivals.
