Things to do in Portland During the Winter

Portland can be described in many ways. It’s progressive, rainy, and has one heck of a food scene. It’s also eco-conscious, artsy, and a beer lover’s paradise. I’ve been to the city once before during the summer and like many, I couldn’t wait to return. This time I headed to Portland during winter and if you’re wondering why keep reading.

The Best Things To Do in Oregon, In and Around Portland

I visited Portland, Oregon for the first time in the summer of 2016 and it was a delicious adventure. It’s a great place for those who love to explore the outdoors located just outside the city and an amazing food destination. There’s no shortage of things to do in and around Portland. Here are some of my favorite things I did along with some helpful tips for your trip.

Rent A Car and Get Outside the City

Just outside Portland is the Columbia River Gorge, a scenic canyon that stretches for miles between Oregon and and the state of Washington. If you’re driving from Portland heading east on the I-84 you’ll be driving alongside the Columbia River Gorge. This is the route to Oregon’s most well-known waterfall, Multnomah Falls. And you can stop along the way to visit other falls such as Bridal Veil and Wahkeena. Wahkeena is a smaller waterfall and is very close to Multnomah. It’s an easy half mile hike in and there’s hardly anyone in sight. Most the other waterfalls will be about a three mile hike in. So if you have the time and enjoy hiking I recommend visiting your favorite falls.
