We saw and hiked waterfalls, rode a zipline and an alpine slide, and ate to our hearts content. I feel as if there are still so many pieces of Portland that we didn't get a chance to see and I'm kinda already wanting to go back (but fly next time... 600+ miles in a car is hard). And hello, no sales tax! Yes outlets, we became best friends over our short stay.
Until next time Oregon.. stay green.

If you go...
Por Que No? - Awesome Mexican food.
The Ram's Head at McMennamins - Ruby is my new favorite beer.
Tin Shed - Visited by Guy Fieri, huge plates that don't disappoint.
Radio Room - Outdoor fire pit and a great place to hang out when the sun goes down with good burgers and fries.
Belmont Station - Over 1200 beers. DH was in heaven.
Pine State Biscuits - Heaven on a biscuit. Fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and gravy in between a biscuit. Don't check my cholesterol.
The Bungalo Bar - A bit of a college vibe, but its a bar in what was a house. The backyard has hammocks and swing chairs!
Ninkasi Brewery (Eugene) - A Eugene based brewery with outdoor seating and is near the U of O stadium.
Jory at the Allison Inn & Spa (Newburg) - An amazing restaurant with a great view of vineyards. The beef tips were amazing.
Voodoo Doughnuts - No intro necessary. We definitely got a donut in our box with bubble gum in it. We went around 8:45AM and there was no line!
Multnomah Falls * - A double fall water fall where you can hike to the top. Reward yourself with ice cream at the bottom - it's a daunting mile up!
Rose Garden * - See why Portland is called the City of Roses. The test rose garden is amazing and offers a great view of the city as well.
Mt. Hood SkiBowl - An alpine slide. Down a mountain. And in winter, they have cosmic tubing (!!!)
* denotes free things to do. Score!
