Two weeks ago my sister and future brother-in-law came to visit us and we had a chance to explore Portland together. This was our first time in Portland and we had a great time walking around the city. It was chilly with scattered rain throughout the day, but we made the best of it. Portland is definitely an interesting city to visit. Coming from Chicago and now Seattle, Portland has a much smaller feel to it. We really enjoyed our time in Portland and I’m sure we’ll go back in a few months to explore more of Portland and the beautiful state of Oregon.
Being in Portland we made sure to try Voodoo Doughnuts. The lines to get in were long. We waited over 30 minutes in the rain before we got our doughnuts, but they were definitely worth the wait.
On our way back to Seattle we decided to visit Multnomah Falls. The waterfall is just beautiful and it’s only a 30 minute drive from Portland. Definitely worth visiting.
