Top Things to See and Do

The Portland Art Museum is one of the must-see places to visit when visiting the city of Portland Oregon. It is home to several important works of art, including works by Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Claude Monet. The museum also has a planetarium, theater, outdoor areas, and an outdoor amphitheater.

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is a great place for kids and adults to spend some time in. There are hands-on exhibits, an IMAX theater, a planetarium, an Imax theater, and much more. It is a fun place to go and check out all of the fun science exhibits. I know it’s weird, but there is a tower that rises 110 stories high. I think you’ll be shocked by the beauty of the skyline when you see it from the top of the tower.

Top Things to Eat

Luna Breads & Cafe Baked goods on one hand, and barbecued ribs on the other. This is your typical cafe, but with a twist. Not only do they serve delicious pastries and bagels, but they also serve an array of delicious snacks and meals. I swear by their buns and croissants, but they also do a variety of breakfast sandwiches and sandwiches too. The PB & J and Biscuit are my favorite! They make these by the dozen and the flavors and sauces are always delicious! Besides being an all-around delicious cafe, Luna Breads is also a favorite place for amazing art! They also have a rotating art display every couple of months that is totally worth stopping by. Their desserts are also amazing!
