    Powell's City of Books

    1005 West Burnside, Portland, OR 97209
    106 reviews

    This place is a book junkie's paradise. Upon entering this magical "city," my inner English Literature geek nearly exploded from happiness. Plan to spend at least a few hours wandering between the stacks as this palatial store occupies a full city block. Besides housing a giant collection of new, used and rare books, Powell's sells them for ridiculously low prices. ...

    Oregon Zoo

    The Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon Rd, Portland, OR 97221, USA
    40 reviews

    The zoo is a fairly nice place to go! It's a great place to spend a half a day at. The only issue I have is that is does feel very small and that it's kind of out of the way of most things.

    Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

    1945 Se Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214
    31 reviews

    OMSI is great fun. Although it's tailored to children, adults will have a good time too. A walk through the submarine moored at the dock is a must, and catching a show in the OMNImax (think IMAX, but with a curved screen) is spectacular.

    Coffee shops, delicatessens, book stores, galleries and a wonderfully vibrant area to walk around in downtown Portland. Old warehouses refurbished into trendy lofts and businesses. Best part of visiting Portland!

    Pioneer Courthouse Square

    701 South West Morrison Street, Portland, OR 97205
    34 reviews

    With its big flat sunken pavilion surrounded by tiered seating, lots of little walls, and a couple of cafes on the corner, Pioneer Square is just begging for interesting street life, whether it's skate rates showing each other tricks, downtown suits eating lunch outdoors, or full festivals with amplified sound. Pioneer Square is definitely worth seeing, and it's also a ...

    International Rose Test Garden

    400 Southwest Kingston Avenue, Portland, OR 97205-5883
    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.

    Japanese Garden

    611 Southwest Kingston Avenue, Portland, OR 97205-5886
    24 reviews

    I think Portland's Japanese Garden is better than most Japanese Gardens. It's situation at a really scenic location on a hill where you get a great view of Portland.

    Tom McCall Waterfront Park

    Waterfront Park, Portland, OR, United States
    26 reviews

    This long, narrowish park on the west side of the Willamette River is a fantastic place for strolling, people-watching, bridge-viewing, or having a picnic on a beautiful day - or on a day when the cherry blossoms are blooming. During the summer, there often are also events, markets, and street performers in this park - and it's always close to ...

    Forest Park

    Upsher Street and Northwest 29th Street, Portland, OR 97210
    19 reviews

    Portland's answer to NYC's Central Park or SF's Golden Gate Park, this sprawling wilderness area is astonishingly wild and beautiful on its own, but especially considering it's within city limits. There are miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, and plenty of places to stop and picnic or check out the view of the city.

    Steel Bridge

    Route 99, Portland, OR 97202
    16 reviews

    In Portland it's easy to take a bridge walk and I've taken 4 over my several trips to the Rose City. Here are my stories....(Cue the Law and Order Clang). The 1912-built Steel Bridge is a through truss, double lift bridge across the Willamette River. It carries railroad and pedestrian traffic on the lower deck, and road traffic and MAX ...

    If you're looking for a cool place that offers beer and a large amount of 80s arcade nostalgia, this is your place. The large amount of pinball machines is an added bonus.

    Powell's Books on Hawthorne

    Powell's City of Books, 3747 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214
    13 reviews

    Classic, traditional style looking book store. When I first entered I really liked the feel of the place. I could see that it went back for quite a ways but I was shocked how big the store was and how comprehensive and diverse their collection. I was even more surprised to find out that there is an even bigger location ...

    Rose Garden Arena

    11 reviews

    I really like the arena. It is modern, clean, and in a very good location close to the highway. The only problems I have with it is that parking is impossible next to the garden (forces you to take public transportation) and you have to go a small distance if you want to go to a bar for drinks.
