    Multnomah Falls

    68 reviews

    Great waterfall. Easy hike to the bridge. Lots of people so it's hard to get some nice shots some times.

    Oregon Zoo

    40 reviews

    It's a beautiful zoo with lots of exhibits and places to venture. It's always pleasantly crowded, so it's not insanely packed nor empty. I really enjoyed the aquariums and polar bear exhibit, and there's a large park area for picnics and enjoying the sun. For food, I had my first elephant ears here (deep-fried dough with cinnamon and sugar) and ...

    Portland Saturday Market

    37 reviews

    A longtime Portland institution, the Saturday Market (also ope on Sundays) is great place to pick up one-of-a-kind handcrafted items from local artists. Here you'll find everything from paintings of nature scenes to hand-stitched hoodies, as well as soaps, jewelry, and tie-dyed everything. Don't forget to sample the "elephant ears," fried flatbread dusted with cinnamon and sugar.

    Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

    31 reviews

    I've been here once for a school field trip (when they were exhibiting the human body) and it was a very enjoyable experience. The exhibits and artifacts are very educational and kid-friendly. The museum is very large and family-oriented but appeals to kids and adults alike. Definitely come with family or younger people for a fun learning environment!

    Pearl District

    32 reviews

    Last five hours in Portland after a busy work weekend. Had to revisit Pearl district and I really love the area. Filled with caf├ęs, shops, brick and cobblestone. So much charm to stroll through and the Portland wet cold somehow makes it all the more charming.

    Pioneer Courthouse Square

    34 reviews

    The square is very popular during lunch for the locals. Street vendors provide food, the steps fill up fairly quickly on nice days and there was music or juggling or some type of entertainment each of the 5 days we spent in Portland visiting. Good example of Portland's emphasis on urban development for their citizen's use.

    International Rose Test Garden

    29 reviews

    Parking is a little hard to find near the top. Parking is cheap, though. Too many people so it was hard to get some good shots. Lovely variety of roses.

    Portland Farmers' Market

    23 reviews

    Phenomenal farmers' market. Great range of produce (fruits and vegetables), and food products (jams, sauces) . In addition, there is a wide range of restaurants and food trucks selling prepared foods. So you can shop, eat, and mingle all you want.

    Tom McCall Waterfront Park

    26 reviews

    When I'm in Portland I love to walk the main trail of Waterfront Park. It's best to go at dawn or dusk and enjoy the soft light and warm colors reflected on the river. Work up a sweat or lounge a bit and watch dragon boaters, scullers, kayakers, and even working ships on the waterway.

    Forest Park

    19 reviews

    Great spot up in the hills to bike / jog, limited views but nice trails. For the mountain bikers there is some pretty epic single track throughout the park, mostly gnarly downhill with some painful climbs if you go off the main carriage trail on the way up.

    Pittock Mansion

    18 reviews

    Beautiful old home built by a pioneer businessman in Portland. The views are outstanding. On a really clear day you can see Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, and if really lucky, Mt. Ranier.

    Mount Tabor Park

    15 reviews

    Mount Tabor is a verdant park atop an old cinder cone volacno, with lots of old trees interspersed with green spaces. It has great panoramic views of Portland, beautiful old trees, and is super fun to ride bikes down really fast. It's also very close to Hawthorne Boulevard, which has some of the cutest shops in town. There are numerous ...

    Steel Bridge

    16 reviews

    One of Portland's many great bridges! You can walk across most of them including this one. I would recommend going during the summer, when it's a nice day to walk across the bridge.
