Perfect 4 Day Itinerary for Portland, Oregon

The Pacific Northwest had been a gaping hole in our US destinations and while we would have liked to have dedicated over a week to exploring the entire region, we only have four days to work with. After some consultations, we decided on Portland as the base for our introduction to the region.

What is there to do?

There is honestly something for everyone! Weather you enjoy city life, beach life, or outdoor life you can focus or mix and match your trip. For us, the trip that planned itself! There is something completely different in every direction.

With each of these taking up a day it made for the perfect four day itinerary to visit Portland Oregon.

Where to eat?

Oh goodness, everything we ate was amazing!

  • Do not miss out of the coffee, donut, ice cream culture – we indulged in each daily
  • Go to Pok Pok for a casual night (get the wings) and Le Pigeon for a treat your self night (incredible!)
  • On your way back from Columbia River Gorge hit Sugarpine Drive In 
  • On your way back from Cannon Beach hit Tillamook Creamery
