Our last day in Portland looked promising when we woke up but by the time we were ready to head out the rain had started. Luckily it didn’t last all day.
We started with a walk along the Waterfront Park Trail which follows the Willamette River.
We stumbled upon the Oregon Maritime Museum and for $7 we went on a tour of the steam powered tugboat led by a docer. It was very informative and interesting.
Voodoo Doughnuts was next! There were only a few people ahead of us when we arrived but before long there were people lined up out the door. I had heard so much about this place of heavenly doughnut goodness and when I looked at the display I realized just what everyone was taking about. How on Earth would we ever decide what to get?
I’m borderline obsessed with bacon, so Bacon Maple Bar was a given. We also went with a Raspberry Romeo, a Chuckles and a Memphis Mafia.
We ate these over the next few days and they were delicious!
Now, you can’t visit Portland without eating from a food cart, right? I just HAD to do this before we left. We walked until we found a bunch of carts near O’ Bryant Square. After completing a loop to see what they had to offer I went with a Chicken Gyro…tricky to eat but one of the best I have ever had.
After this we headed to a spot where we could watch the sun go down and get some photos of Hawthorne Bridge and the city before and during blue hour.
All in all, Portland was fabulous and we will definitely return!
