On our last day in Portland, we woke up early so we could fit in as much as possible!
We started off our day at the famous Voo Doo Donut. Usually, there are lines out the door but since we went around seven in the morning we only had to wait for a few minutes. There were so many choices!
Our choices included the ODB (oreo and peanut butter) and the Voo Doo Doll donut which was filled with raspberry preserve “blood.”
To go with our donuts, we stopped at Stumptown Coffee for some coffees. We had heard a lot about Stumptown and it definitely lived up to the hype!
Fully caffeinated, we headed south for a morning hike!
Our hike location of choice? Maltnomoh Falls!
The hike was a beautiful and steep 1.3 miles and 700 feet up to the top the falls. The elevation was challenging, but the short distance made it very doable.
We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed getting out in the fresh air. This is definitely something we cannot do in Illinois!
When we made it to the top, I loved looking over the edge to see how far we had come. Check out the view!
After our hike, we headed back to The Nines to relax for a bit and get ready for our day. We spent the afternoon walking around Downtown Portland and checking out the local shops and sights.
For lunch, we stopped at Bamboo Sushi. The sushi was awesome and so unbelievably fresh! Probably the best sushi we have ever had.
On our way back to our hotel, we stumbled upon Blue Moon Tavern & Grill, another McMenamin’s establishment that my cousin Megan and her husband Nate had their first date. We had to stop in and cheers to them!
After our happy hour, we got ready for our last night out on the town at Portland City Grill. We had a delicious dinner, but the view could not be beat.
Our waiter brought out two desserts on the house at the end of our meal. Yum! After dinner, we were so tired that we passed out at 10:00pm on our last night in Portland! I guess we were feeling very old and married! 🙂
Before we left for the airport, we finally got to sample a few food trucks and then we were off! It was a great trip and one we will never forget! However, both of us agreed that the best part of the trip was coming home. It was what we had been waiting for, to be home and married. That was the best part! 🙂
