What makes portland so weird? Not sure because I had a great time! Maybe I'm weird too....hmm haha. So I was in Portland for 7 days, 5 of which were for work so I only had so much time to explore. Either way I'd love to share all of the fun things and great food I discovered!

(All of the titles include links!)

Here is my guide to 3 days in Portland.


This place serves a delicious Scandinavian brunch. I recommend the danish pancakes!

This is definitely a must see! Being from Miami just the drive alone to this area was absolutely beautiful. When you arrive to the parking lot you can already see and hear the beautiful waterfall. As you cross the street and get closer you definitely get colder! You can also start to smell the AMAZING freshly made nuts that a little booth near the falls makes.

The waterfall is fully visible from the lowest point of the hike! At the lowest point of this hike you will also be really cold so if you aren't going to do the whole hike I recommend an outfit like mine! I regrettably did the hike in this outfit haha. About 5 minutes in you REALLY begin to warm up! So if you are going to do the whole hike I recommend a workout outfit! I promise you WILL get warm.

W A R N I N G the hike may be a "short distance" but it's mostly uphill. I was definitely struggling (as were many others haha) but it was beautiful all the way up. I stripped of most of my clothes by the time I got to the top!

Before you go don't forget to stop by the little booth that sells walnuts, almonds, and cashews. It's only $6 for a bag of freshly made warm and crunchy nuts.

We stayed at The Porter and it was very chic. We booked with saved up points otherwise I'm sure we would have gone with a more affordable option! This hotel has a few restaurants and a pretty awesome rooftop bar and lounge! Anyone can go check out the rooftop (21+) or eat at the restaurants and cafes!

O M G this place is SO GOOD. The line out the door speaks for itself. I ordered the coconut curry and its probably my favorite food now.


The Saturday market was really fun!! Endless tents full of vendors and local creatives selling their work. I think this is an awesome way to spend an!! Also, all of the trees and leaves are just so beautiful this time of the year (Nov).

This place is REALLY something. This school was basically converted into a hotel that has a movie theater, bars, a pool, a restaurant and much more! The drinks were awesome and you have to try their tater tots.


This was one of the restaurants in The Porter Hotel we stayed in. Brunch was pretty amazing!

Explore parks

If you are not from some place where you experience the change of the leaves (or seasons), you have to find parks and take a stroll! The first image (yellow) was right near our hotel and the image on the right (pink) was from the Saturday market!

The Montage is a Cajun/creole Restaurant that has AMAZING mac n cheese selections. My personal favorite part is when they wrap leftovers in foil shaped like a variety of cool animals and objects!

Other restaurant recommendations:

Menjiro for ramen

(I only had dessert but it was my favorite carrot cake)

I hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions feel free to drop a comment below!

Until next time :)
