    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

    Portland Saturday Market is always fun to explore on the weekends on the waterfront. You can find food, little trinkets, clothes, jewelry, and almost everything else. You'll see a lot of hipsters around but it's Portland, of course. It's a fun place to hang out and people-watch too! Things aren't always cheap, but it's fun to "window-shop."

    Pearl District

    32 reviews

    A lot of the nice restaurants and bars are located in the Pearl District. We stayed at someone's condo through Airbnb, it was a cool area, but for some reason, it smelled like dog pee EVERYWHERE we walked. That was unpleasant especially since all the buildings were so new and modern. You can pretty much walk to restaurants, shops, or ...

    Rose Garden Arena

    11 reviews

    Portland's giant arena is beautiful, well-designed, and makes every effort to maximize audience experience no matter what seats you can afford. Parking is convenient and cheap (relative to many California arenas, that is), and though the food is expensive, at least it's good. This is one of my favorite indoor places on the West Coast to see a major act.
