The Portland Zoo


Adults and children alike love a good old fashioned trip to the zoo. The Portland zoo is located right in the center of Washington Park and is the perfect addition to a day outside. This 64-acre zoo featuring elephants, polar bears & other animal exhibits emphasizing conservation. If you have kids, this will be a great day out learning and exploring some of the best that Portland has to offer.


Something For Adults - Breweries


If there is one thing Portland has it is beer, and plenty of it. Beer connoisseurs will quickly fall in love with Portland and all the brews it has for the tasting. For some of the best brewery experiences we recommend visiting 10 Barrel Brewing, The Commons Brewery, Old Town Brewing, Ecliptic Brewing and Burnside Brewing. Most breweries in Portland offer delicious food options and can be quite family friendly as well.


Nature Lovers Paradise


If you love nature then the Portland area is perfect for you. While Portland does have a city feel, you don’t have to go far to experience nature. Portland has hikes for beginners and more intermediate hikers including:

  • Wahclella Falls.

  • Eagle Creek.

  • Trail of Ten Falls (Silver Falls)
