It’s official, I will be going to Portland Oregon in June 2019 with my boyfriend. I bought my flight and reserved my Airbnb. My flight leaves on a Wednesday night but I get to Portland at Midnight on Thursday. Then I leave at 6 AM Sunday. They are not the greatest flight times but they were the cheapest. I wanted to plan to go to Portland in March but I keep hearing the weather is amazing in the summer. A friend of mine helped me set up my Airbnb and gave me a map of the city to use public transportation. Here are things I want to do in Portland:
1. Powell Bookstore:
It’s the largest independent bookstore in the world. I hear you can get lost in the bookstore because its huge and that they even provide maps. I will definitely enjoy my time. I will walk down the aisles looking for books with a cup of coffee.
2. Blue Star donuts:
They make donuts from scratch with fresh ingredients. I keep hearing the donuts are amazing. One flavor I want to try is the Cointreau Creme Brulee.
3. Mulnomah falls:
This a 30 minute drive from Portland. I might rent a car to drive there. I have been wanting to see these beautiful falls for awhile.
4. Explore coffee and brewery’s:
I keep hearing that they are now for their coffee and beer. I was going to sign up to do a tour of both but I decided to explore them on my own. One coffee shop I want to visit is Stumpton coffee. They are many locations so it should not be difficult to find one. A brewery I had in mind is EX Nova Brewery.
5. Mill ends park:
It’s the world smallest city park. Its in the Guinness book of world records. I can’t wait to see this cute park.
If y’all have ever been to Portland OR, please let me know of areas to visit. I am really excited about this trip and will take many pictures. Also, I will write a blog about my favorite things in Portland.
