“A staple of any Portland trip, the Japanese Gardens are an oasis of serenity in the city, a series of gardens and walkways lined with streams and a traditional Japanese tea house, all with a beautiful view of Mount Hood. The former Japanese ambassador to the US reportedly called it “the most beautiful and authentic Japanese garden in the world outside of Japan.” The garden even got a recent buildout from famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, currently designing the 2020 Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Tickets to the gardens are around $17 for adults and well worth it.”

“Portland may not be the art mecca as cities like New York or Chicago are, but it does have a modestly sized museum that offers some classic and contemporary art pieces, as well as local and Native American art.

Tickets are $20 for adults, and free for kids under 17, making it a great place to visit for families.”

Here, animals are rescued and given a second chance at life, as the zoo provides rehabilitation, education, and considerable efforts towards the conservation of vulnerable species. Plus, you get to see adorable and amazing animals, from elephants and bats to tigers and sea otters. Tickets are just under $20, and all of it goes to a good cause.”
