Spending a weekend in Portland 2021. Outdoors + Best Places to Visit for a Short Weekend Stay

Planning any weekend trip can always be a challenge. Going through trip advisor and other sites that show-case “the best things to do” while visiting a particular city, state, or country and can be daunting.

My weekend trip to Portland, Oregon primarily consists of the following: mostly outdoor activities that include hikes and a variety of eateries and indoor activities.

The Pacific northwest is known for one of the best hiking spots around. I have done many of the hikes in Washington state and so I was looking to pursue and continue my adventure for documenting and show-casing other fabulous hiking trails.

This weekend at Portland will visit such places like Spirit falls, Pool of the Winds, Multnomah Falls, Pip’s Donut, Voodoo Donuts, and the Japanese Gardens, Lechon restaurant.

Weather was fairly nice during the weekend trip here and we tried to make the best use of our time while we were visiting. Unfortunately, Beacon Rock State park was closed due to Covid-19 reasons and as a result, had to skip that adventure. Due to the slow decline of Covid-19, I would highly check the website and check to see the planned opening of this location. Beacon Rock State park would be a fantastic viewpoint to see the Columbia River Gorge so I would HIGHLY recommend visiting when it opens.

Otherwise, for those of you looking to visit Portland and wanting to spend most of your time looking at the greater sceneries that Oregon has to offer, particularly near Portland, you must check out these spots!

  1. Oregon is one of those states that's very similar to Washington. Its got the great outdoors, great people, but the one thing that i would say it beats in Washington is the food. Unfortunately, during my visit here, we were unable to sample some of the great cuisine that Portland, Oregon is known for. But definitely come check out some of the great hikes that this state has to offer!

  2. This seems to be a very charming city, I hope I can visit sometime in the future when all this is over. Seeing and sharing places like this is why I love traveling and make videos so much!

  3. Visit downtown and you will get to see a lovely assortment of tents. Walk around and you can enjoy dodging piles of human feces. And if you time it right, you can see dumpster fires, Molotov cocktails thrown, and local artist spray painting city hall and the court houses.
