Welcome to YOUR Portland Neighborhood Community

I finally got my parents to come out and visit us!  But still being new to Portland myself, I am not sure what the absolute must-see's in the city are.  We are definitely going out to the coast and Multnomah Falls.  We are also going to do a boat tour down the Willamette. 

 

Any suggestions on what parts of Portland I should take them to? 

 

Thanks much!!

I think you should try the Japanese garden or Rose Test Gardn.  Multnomah Falls is great, definitely worth the trip. Maybe some hiking at Forest Park? What else are you or your parents interested in?
Tryon Creek State Park

Thank you for the recommendations.  We did make it to Multnomah Falls.  We also drove down the coast and made it into Portland a few times, namely to check out the Farmer's Market and Powells.  Sadly, my parents flew back home yesterday.  :-(    But they will definitely be back!!

 

I really want to check out the Japanese Garden.  I heard from several people that it is absolutely beautiful.  I have not heard of Forest Park or Tryon Creek State Park but still being new to the area ourselves, my husband and I have a lot to discover yet. 

 

Thanks again!

Glad you were able to make it to Multnomah Falls, its really impressive. Famer's market and Powells are great, did you go to the one at PSU? The other thing i would have recommended is a food truck and Mt. Tabor.

We are new to Portland too and have not convince my parents to come visit me yet, but hopefully soon. Where are you from?

We went to the farmer's market under the bridge at the park on Naito Pkwy.  We wanted the one at PSU but somehow I found the other one when I was trying to get a location.  Oh well, we still had a fun time.

 

How long have you lived in Portland?  Where did you move from?  My husband and I moved here from Loveland, CO in March. 

We moved at the end of March as well and moved from Chicago. My husband is actually from Ft. Collins, CO.  

 

How was the farmer's market on Naito Pkwy? We've gone to the PSU and now the Hollywood one.  I'd like to try some other ones but probably next year.

What a small world!  My parents live in Fort Collins too.  They were sad how brown it was after seeing Portland.   

 

The farmer's market on Naito wasn't so much a farmer's market as a craft fair.  There were no fruit or vegetable stands at all.  But if you are into homemade artsy things, it is a great place.  I think they run every weekend year round, so you could still go to it this year if you were interested.
