For The Kids
The Oregon Zoo is such an amazing fun place for the whole family. This is a must do on my families list of things to do when we are in Oregon.
The Portland Children's Museum just happens to be right across the parking lot from the zoo which is super convenient when planning a day just for the kids.
For The Music Lovers
A trip to Portland just wouldn't be complete without a pop into our favorite used CD and DVD stores to do a little shopping. My dad and I love Music Millennium and both Everyday Music's. We walk in with our list of much wanted CD's and DVD's and walk out with a bag full of both and money still in our pockets, you know how much I love my used/thrifted finds!
Our favorite place to go to see live music is the Crystal Ballroom. Inside is amazingly beautiful and the floor is fantastic! The floor is a "floating" dance floor so it feels really weird but is really fun when you are walking or dancing on it.
Food & Drinks
My favorite place to chill and grab some food and a few drinks is under the Crystal Ballroom, McMenamins Ringlers Pub. This place is huge and there is so much to look at. The bar is amazing and I find myself staring at it for most of the time that I am there. Their list of beers and liquors is pretty long and the beers are made on the second floor of the building right above the restaurant and bar. There is a place to play pool, shuffleboard and pinball. Their food is also really good, I am a huge fan of the Aztec Salad....yum!

I am a huge Grimm fan so of course I had to do a bit of site stalking when my dad and I took our usual trip to Portland, it was a lot of fun!
Like I said Portland is one of my favorite cities, I have spent a lot of my life exploring this weird magical city and I never plan on stopping!
