    Multnomah Falls

    Columbia Gorge Historic Highway (map 3)Interstate 84, Exit 31
    67 reviews

    I'm quite the acrophobe but Multnomah is nothing extreme and plenty fun. The waterfall is beautiful and the bridge near the center is a classic place for the gorgeous view. It's a nice place for a short, populated hike and to get a bit of nature. I've been coming here since I was a kid, it's great for family hikes.

    I visited this during the Rose Festival and it was absolutely packed! There's not a whole lot of "amazing food" here but theres tonnes to talk around and absorb. Great walk for families and within the vicinity of Voodoo too!

    Oregon Zoo

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

    Classical Chinese Garden

    Portland, Oregon, United States
    9 reviews

    In downtown's Old Town and Chinatown historic district, this petite garden is a wonderful surprise. You might think from the semi-steep price of admission and the down-and-out streets nearby that this garden is isn't worth making time for. Wrong. Landscape architects from China came over expressly to build this garden from the ground up. It's even diverting for kids, with ...

    After my Son's Parent Teacher Conference, I drove over and took the Kid to the 3rd Floor of the OHSU Center for Health and Healing. This is the building down below from "Stratos", home of the OHSU Cloud Minders. It's at the foot of the tram and right next to the really cool ship building yard. The hardest thing about ...

    Anything that gets me out on the water is a good thing. This wan't nearly as cheesy as I feared it might be. We did the lunch cruise, and the food was pretty good. It's a relaxing way to see the scenery.
