Trip Report Trip Report - Oregon Astounds - Portland, Mt. Hood, Bend, Cannon Beach

Jump to last reply

I recently spent one week touring Oregon. Although I actually grew up in Oregon, I now live in New England and was coming back to my "home state" to show my boyfriend the area. It was awesome touring the state. We got a lot in over a week and it didn't seem too packed. I blogged all my trip reports for those interested in similar trips. Here is a synopsis:

- Portland - Biking, Beer, Baristas - We spent a day in Portland, Oregon touring the city by bike. We started in the East side in the Cully neighborhood, crossed over to the West side and Pearl District at one point and eventually came back. I'm blogged the trip here: http://thefreelanceadventurer.blogspot.com/2013/07/portland-oregon-biking-beer-and-baristas.html
Our adventured included:
- Voodoo Doughnuts
- Community Cycling Center
- Upright Brewing Company
- Rogue Brewing Company
- The Bye and Bye Restaurant/Bar
- Barista Coffee Shop
- Saturday Market
- Portland Bridges

- Crossing the Cascades - We drove over Mt. Hood, visiting the Timberline Lodge, Government Camp, and the Deschutes River. I blogged the trip report here: http://thefreelanceadventurer.blogspot.com/2013/07/crossing-cascades-scenic-drive-from.html

- Central Oregon - We stayed three nights in Sunriver and explored Bend and Newberry National Forest. I blogged the adventures here: http://thefreelanceadventurer.blogspot.com/2013/07/newberry-national-volcanic-monument-in.html
