Leif Erikson Trail in Forest Park

Park
4198 NW Leif Erikson Dr, Portland, OR 97210, USA
Leif Erikson Trail in Forest Park

"Leif Erikson trail is about 12 miles, and you can bike, run, or walk your dog. It's just one of the most beautiful places I've ever been because you're surrounded by columns of really tall trees, and it's really beautiful. So I'd take anyone visiting Portland there. I love these trails."

Portland Farmers Market at Portland State University

Farmer's market

Portland Farmers Market at Portland State University

"If I had friends visiting I'd definitely take them to the [Portland] Farmers Market. There's one on the Portland State University campus with probably 200 stalls. It's the biggest farmer's market I've ever seen. We'd go to Nom Nom, my favorite stall for Taiwanese buns, and then walk around and get groceries so I can cook something for them later."

Gado Gado

Asian fusion restaurant
1801 NE Cesar E Chavez Blvd, Portland, OR 97212, United States
Gado Gado

"Gado Gado is probably my favorite restaurant here. It's Chinese, Dutch, and Indonesian. It has a rice table, so they just give you like ten small dishes to share, and they're some of the most creative, exciting things I've ever eaten. Portland's just such a good food town."

Restaurant

Ok Omens

"The salted cream beignets at OK Omens are incredible. I was fantasizing about a pulley system. I wanted to move into the house across the street so I could get them delivered at any point."

Wildcraft

Art school
2410 SE 50th Ave, Portland, OR 97206, United States
Wildcraft

"Whenever my friends visit, I encourage them to go to WildCraft Studio School, which is an art school. You can do a foraging class and make inks with the foraged things you find or do natural textile dyeing. I started pottery when I first moved here, so I also highly recommend Greentree Art Studio."
