Summer in Oregon

Every summer, we have a chance to visit Portland, Oregon. It’s a perfect place for you to feel a chill weather during summer time, high about 75 F and low around 55-60 F. There are so many outdoor and fun activities here for you to do. Here are some highlights of my most recent trip to Oregon.

Hiking up to the top of Multnomah falls is a  must. The nature is gorgeous and the hike is awesome. The falls drop in two steps with total height of 620 feet (189m), and it’s the second tallest fall in the US.

When I’m in Portland, I love to start my day with hiking. There are so many nice hiking trails around Oregon. Here is another beautiful one called Horsetail trail. 

We took a road trip to Timberline Lodge and hiked up to Mt.Hood.

Mt.Jefferson in the background and Timberline Lodge seen from halfway hiking up to the top of Mt.Hood. This hotel built in 1930s and it is noted in film for serving as the exterior of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.

We walked up and down the fun street called NW 23rd. There are so many great, fun restaurants and shops on this street. My favorite place is Salt & Straw ice-cream store, the popular ice cream spot in Portland. They have many strange flavors as strawberry cilantro lime cheesecake, pear and blue cheese, caramel with salted dark chocolate….

Another fun store to visit while you’re on NW 23rd is Poplandia. It’s popcorn heaven. They serve delicious gourmet popcorn from the standard flavor Sea Salted Caramel and Double Cheesy to  unique flavors that are tasty, fresh, and very creative as Cool Watermelon Sorbet, Coconut Curry, Maple Bourbon Bacon and Cheddar Upon Caramel…

Merriman Vineyard in Yamhill county is beautiful. I always enjoy a private tour to this vineyard…Lol! Please, don’t tell anyone it’s my hubby’s vineyard :).

It was cloudy that day and we couldn’t see the Mt.Hood view, but it was such a beautiful sky.

Have a lovely day ahead! xo…Hanh :)

  1. I had the opportunity to visit Portlad OR earlier this year, it was great! I love the Pacific Northwest in general and Portland was no exception. I visited the Fall and toured some wineries (not Merriman though, but not sure they allow non-VIPs to visit anyway :P). I wish I had your suggestions for the city when I went, though!

  2. I’ve been to so many places in the US but it never crossed my mind to go to Portland but after reading your post I really want to go. Sounds like it has all the ingredients for a great trip – amazing nature, good food, fun things to explore and decent weather. Are the any good places for shopping? :))

  4. Wow. Those first couple of photographs are really breathtaking. I’ve just moved out of the US, but posts like this really make me appreciate my home country! I’ve got to go visit Oregon!

    Really awesome post! Keep up the good work :)

  5. Haven’t popped over to your blog in awhile. Love the Oregon pics. I do love your designer outfits – it’s also nice to see the Zara and UO clothing – a little more attainable for the masses. Is the wine only sold locally or could I find it here in D/FW?
