Portland is a hip and easy town to spend a few days in. Easy because of the public transport infrastructure and because the whole city is small enough to cover on foot if you really want to.
There are many mouth-watering restaurants and food pods to explore, unusual activities to try, and even outdoor recreation nearby if you're feeling inclined.
50 Things You Can Do in Portland
If you have a trip planned to Portland, Oregon but don't know what you should see or do, then keep reading to see our list of 50 ways you could spend your time in the City of Roses.
I would say you could cover at least 25% of this list in two days. If you have an extra day to spare and would like to get out of the city, you could take a drive and explore the Historic Columbia River Highway and see some of the many beautiful waterfalls near Portland.
Before getting to the list, we also recommend checking to see if your favorite performers or sports team will be playing or performing in Portland because this can make your trip more exciting and extra special.
I always check to see if my favorite bands will be playing in the city I'm visiting ahead of time to get discounted tickets. Sometimes I'll even organize a getaway around a show or game we want to see.
