Bring an umbrella just in case, because its Portland.
We explored Portland on a weekday and it was perfect.
Park at Powell's City of Books; you get a discount if you purchase something at the store.
Whether you’re just passing through or spending a few days, venture out with this half-day itinerary in Portland with kids. The town’s depth and unique feel is palpable. To begin, take in a sugary breakfast at Voodoo Doughnut, then read to the kids at Powell’s City of Books (one of the best book stores in the country). Finally, head to Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Along the way, walk the city’s charming streets and experience Portland’s forward-thinking vibe. Notice the compost bins next to every trash can and the countless activists at Pioneer Courthouse Square trying to make a difference. Plus, there are numerous people biking everywhere rather than driving. This itinerary offers wonderfully fun things to do in Portland for kids. As with most visitors, the charm of Portland will certainly draw you back to explore the many more amazing family-friendly spots.
