Up past the more famous rose garden on the west side is an arboretum with hiking trails and a zoo. Great views of Portland’s downtown and Mt. St. Helens in the distance. It’s very peaceful and any time of year it’s a nice and quick escape from the city, just takes under 10 minutes to get to.

This neighborhood theater is one of the oldest movie houses in the U.S. It opened up in 1915. I love to see movies here, especially screenings put on by Cinema Project. They are a collectively run, non-profit that screens amazing avant-garde films from the past and present.

Cool gallery and store on Burnside. They keep a pretty consistent calender of events, always worth checking out. Some purchases include a mix tape CD of fine taste.

Home to the best breakfast burrito in the world. But their hours are unpredictable and they often run out of eggs (possible?) early and have to close. So get there early or plan for a weekday visit.

I love stopping by the Skyline after a hike through Forest Park. They have an amazing view, a brick BBQ pit, horse shoes, ping pong, and a REAL jukebox.

A beautiful luncheonette situated in the heart of Portland, Måurice is a haven in the city. Blending French & Nordic cuisines, you can't help but slow down, breathe in, and enjoy the finer things in life. You'll find fresh flowers on every table, one of the many touches that make this place special. It has become my favourite place to dine in Portland, and quite possibly the world. Recommendations: the daily quiche, a glass of rosé, and a currant + rosemary scone.
