Visit Portland: Top 10 Things to Do with Kids

Portland is one of my favorite cities, and one of my kids' favorite cities too.

Here are the top 10 things to do with kids in Portland (according to my kiddos, based on the things we did on our trip):

1. Visit Enchanted Forest - although technically not in Portland, it was just an hour drive to this fun amusement park!
2. Play in the snow at White River West Sno-Park - also not in Portland, but just 90 minutes away - a day at White River West Sno-Park during the winter meant hours of snow play.  And it's free!
3. Pretend, create, imagine, and play at Portland Children's Museum - the variety of things to do here kept my kids busy for hours!

4. Learn about science through play at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry - the number and variety of exhibits intrigued the kids.  Learning was so much fun!
5. Indulge in some of the best ice cream ever at Salt & Straw - really - some of the best ice cream we've ever had!

6.  See penguins, hippos, naked mole rats, and more at the Oregon Zoo - we saw so many different types of animals!

7. Visit Multnomah Falls - my oldest exclaimed "It looks like the waterfall from Radiator Springs!"
8. Eat a nice meal at Hopworks Urban Brewery then play - love that HUB has kids playspaces!
9. Eat a doughnut covered in M&M's from Voodoo Doughnut - or a doughnut covered in rice crispies and peanut butter.  Or peanut butter and chocolate chips.  Or peanut butter & OREOs.

10. See the beautiful tulips at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm - my kids were excited to see so many colorful flowers.  There's even a windmill on site for fun photo ops!
