Overwhelmed at planning and how to spend your time off while living in Portland? Follow my checklist for day trips from Portland! Many of these will be a 1-3 hour drive each way, so plan accordingly! I love driving so my concept of driving distance can be different than many others, so map out distance ahead of time.
First off, before I get started, let me say below that I have tried to create an itinerary that could tend to all. However, you will see many wineries suggested, but many are also kid friendly! Furthermore, many of these places are more “big” places to visit, as opposed to restaurant or local park suggestions.
Secondly, my recommendation is to always have maps downloaded and a general plan before taking off for any day trips from Portland. In addition to the map, always have snacks and plenty of water on hand to prevent hangriness!
Without further ado, follow the checklist below for day trips from Portland!
This list can be exhausting but print it out for your reference and get to them when you can. Finally, make sure to bring snacks for your journey and thanks for checking out this list of day trips from Portland!
