Cape Kiwanda, Pacific City, OR – BEAUTIFUL views, and a fun hike up and an even better hike down.
Tillamook Cheese Factory, Tillamook, OR – free samples, close to Cape Kiwanda, yummy ice cream.
Multnomah Falls – super awesome tall waterfall, fun hiking around and other nearby waterfalls.
Oneonta Gorge – beautiful and peaceful space to explore.
Find a Klutch mural in Portland – they’re pretty neat.
International Rose Test Garden, Portland, OR – so many fun colors and smells!
Oregon Public House, Portland, OR – I didn’t actually go, but if you’re going to drink, might as well do it somewhere where they give back to the community, right?
PSU Farmer’s Market, Portland, OR – if you’re in the need for fresh fruits and veggies and/or ice cream.
Saturday Market, Portland, OR – lots of neat crafts and food vendors.
OREGON THINGS TO SKIP IF YOU’RE CRUNCHED FOR TIME:
High Desert Museum, Bend, OR – it’s cool, but not worth an extra trip or the cost.
Last Thursday on Alberta St., Portland, OR – It’s cool, but if you’ve been to one street fair, they’re pretty much all the same. The bubbles were cool though.
Salt and Straw, Portland, OR – the ice cream is good, but the cone to ice cream ratio is a little ridiculous as was the line.
Voodoo Doughnut, Portland, OR – again, nothing to write home about, except the cock and balls donut, but who pays $6 for a donut?!
