Day Trips from Portland, OR – Exploring the Surrounding Area

Day Trips from Portland, OR

Pack your bags and call a cab! Portland, Oregon, is a beautiful city with fascinating surroundings. Majestic mountains, good local wine, gorgeous valleys, forests, and waterfalls make Oregon the perfect getaway from hustle and bustle of the city. Pacific Northwest has something for everyone, even just a short drive from Portland. Here are some of the best places to visit:

Columbia River Gorge

Half an hour’s drive to the east will get you to the fascinating and truly beautiful natural wonder, Columbia River Gorge, that stretches 80 miles down the river. The scenery is just unbelievable and includes majestic waterfalls, cliffs, and countless hiking trails. Multnomah Falls are the tallest in Oregon and are accompanied by Bridal Veil Falls, Horsetail Falls, and Wahclella Falls. Choose Eagle Creek Trail or Wahclella Falls Trail and come close to these gifts of nature. 

In case you can’t or choose not to hike, you can call Radio Cab and go on a scenic drive down the Historic Columbia River Highway that winds right through the gorge. You’ll enjoy spectacular views for a reasonable rate.

Willamette Valley Wine Country

One of the finest wine regions in the United States s located just south of Portland! The region is a must-visit location for people who enjoy good wine because it is home to around 500 wineries. You’ll find everything between small, family wineries and huge winemakers. You can usually get a tour of each estate and enjoy award-winning wines combined with delicious food. 

Pinot Noir is the area’s signature variety, although you can also find Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah. Even if you’re not a wine enthusiast, you’ll enjoy tasty food and shopping in charming small towns spread across the region. McMinnville, for example, offers several phenomenal restaurants and the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum.

Mount Hood

The highest mountain peak in Oregon, Mount Hood, can be found only 50 miles east of Portland. People enjoy summer and winter sports and activities. There are multiple ski resorts in the region, including Timberline Lodge, which has a glacier that allows year-round skiing. Mount Hood is an attractive spot for mountain biking, hiking, and other outdoor sports throughout the summer. Over 1,200 miles of trails, from simple treks to difficult peak climbs, may be found throughout the area. 

Enjoy the day or weekend trip to Mount Hood with your family. There are many rivers and lakes nearby, so activities like camping, fishing, and boating sound like a great idea. If you want to relax and enjoy every minute of your trip, book a taxi from your home near Portland or Vancouver, WA.

Cannon Beach

Long, sandy beaches, parks, picnic areas, and colossal Haystack Rock are all set in the charming coastal town of Cannon Beach. Haystack Rock rises 235 feet above sea level and is home to many bird species. This unusual and beautiful formation makes the beach even more attractive. However, there’s more than a lovely beach in this small and pretty town. There are many art galleries, boutique shops, and restaurants across the downtown area.

Portland is eighty miles away from Cannon Beach, which is roughly an hour and a half drive. Radio Cab is available from all parts of Portland, like Pearl District, Portland Downtown, and South Portland. If you don’t want to drive, you can arrange a comfy ride to Cannon Beach 24/7.
