5 Things To Do In Portland

Every time I go and visit Oregon, I leave a little bit more in love with the state. Although I only had time for a short trip, I made sure to treat my self to some of my favorite Portland things.

5 Ways to Treat Yo’ Self in Portland

1. Voodoo Doughnut

Voodoo Doughnuts Treasure Tromp
This should be at the top of your list for your first trip to Portland. Yes the lines are long and yes they aren’t the best tasting doughnuts in the world, but the huge selection makes it a must-do.

2. Breweries

BridgePort Brew Pub Treasure Tromp
Portland is home to a ton of breweries. There are so many in this tiny city that Portland is also referred to as Beervana. I love visiting BridgePort and Deschutes while visiting.

3. Forest Park

Forest Park, Portland Oregon
Forest Park is the largest urban forest in the US (5,157 acres!). The forest is the perfect place to take a short hike or picnic.

4. Salt & Straw.

Salt & Straw - portland love
Basically the most amazing ice cream place you’ll ever visit. All of the ice cream is all-natural, organic, and handmade in small-batches.

5. Coffee.

coava coffee - portland love
I can’t get enough of Portland coffee. While I could go on and on about all the amazing coffee places, I love Coava Coffee. By far my favorite coffee place in Portland and that is saying something. When you walk up to the counter they have two menus waiting for you. One menus has the daily selection of coffee while the other has the espresso choices. Both menus only have 2 options. They only serve their coffee pour-over style from fancy glass thermoses. It might sound kind of ridiculous but it is wonderful.
