Famous for it being the largest independent bookstore. Even if you don't like books, you'll find this place amazing. There is a coffee shop on-prem. I love the photography section... one of the best collection of photobooks; but that's just me. You'll find something here for every interest.

A flagship pilgrimage site for bibliophiles. There are several locations around Portland, but none of them as impressive as the Burnside location. We could spend hours in the aisles of this book store. Such a fun place to visit.

“The Portland Art Museum was founded in 1892 and is the seventh oldest museum in the country. The museum has become famous around the world because of its permanent collection that has more than 42,000 pieces in it. For history buffs there are plenty of historic art pieces on display. There are many pieces that have been collected from the native people of North America as well as a large collection of English silver. The campus that the museum sits on also has the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art which is well worth taking a look at.”

“Portland Japanese Garden is located in Washington Park in Portland, Oregon overlooking the city and providing a tranquil, urban oasis for locals and travelers alike. Designed in 1963, it encompasses 12 acres with eight separate garden styles, and includes an authentic Japanese Tea House, meandering streams, intimate walkways, and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood. This is a place to let go of worldly thoughts and concerns and see oneself as a small but integral part of the universe."”

“At 5,200 acres, Portland's Forest Park is one of the largest urban forests in the United States. With more than 80 miles of trails, fire lanes and forest roads, Forest Park stretches for more than seven miles along the eastern slope of the Tualatin Mountains, overlooking Northwest Portland and the convergence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Forest Park offers an unparalleled opportunity for visitors to experience a true Northwest forest without leaving the Portland city limits. Pet friendly and even some kiddo friendly trails. Perhaps the city's most beloved and unique attribute.”

Built in 1914, Pittock Mansion tells the story of Portland’s transformation from pioneer town to modern, industrialized city through the history and legacy of one its most influential families, the Pittocks. Saved from demolition by dedicated citizens in 1964, the Mansion and surrounding estate was purchased by the City of Portland and opened to the public as a historic house museum."”

“What a fun and interesting place for kids and adults! Also enjoy beautiful views of the city and access to a walk across the Tilikum Crossing Bridge of the People (yep, that’s its name!), the largest car-free bridge in the United States. And don’t miss lunch at Theory, OMSI’s cafe. The chef is amazing, and it has something for everyone (from elevated specials to a pizza bar). One of our favorites we often go to even without a visit to the museum! ”
