Day Trips From Portland

Portland is centrally located in a way that makes seeing the best of what Oregon has to offer simple. Here are some day trips from Portland you won’t want to miss.

Take in the Mountains

Both inside and outside of the city, there are countless sights to see and places to visit in your rental car. Consider a 30-minute drive east to see the breath-taking Multnomah Falls. And why stop when you reach the falls? Just less than two hours further east you can visit Mt. Hood and take a tour through the Timberline Lodge, which was used for the exterior shots of the hotel in The Shining.

Visit the Coast

Roughly 90 minutes northwest of Portland lies Cannon Beach and the beautiful Pacific Northwest coastline. Home to tide pools and Haystack Rock, this beach town offers galleries, restaurants, and shops to help you pass the time. If traveling with kids, consider visiting Seaside instead, where you’ll find a variety of things to keep the kids busy, including arcades, a carousel, and an aquarium.

Portland Rose Festival

Are you looking to have a unique experience that is purely Portland? The Rose Festival has been taking place for over 100 years and offers an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate diversity and unity simultaneously. With several parades, fireworks, races, an auction, a city sing-off, and a plethora of other activities taking place over the course of several months, visiting Portland in the summertime offers you a chance to experience the city as never before.
