Things to do in Oregon

Oregon Bucket List

Hey there!! How are you doing?? Beating weekday stress I am all up here with this new post about “Things to do in Oregon“.

Honestly friends I love everything about places which is completely owned by nature. And who doesn’t love BEACHES *three cheers*. You know what, Oregon is not only about beaches or like the Oregonian called as “Bay Area”. You will certainly get lot of cherries on the cake. Yessss, its a complete package about bay areas, heavily dense forests, waterfalls, calderas and beautiful heaven kind of lakes. What else do you need for a full recreational package.

Isn’t it a must have location on your bucket list??

South Waterfront Lower Tram:

Start your trip by taking an aerial tram in Portland South Waterfront Lower Tram to get the beautiful city view. Basically this tram carries commuters between the city’s South Waterfront district and the main Oregon Health & Science University campus. Round trip fare is just $4.90.

Multnomah Falls:

Memorably magnificent waterfall in the country is located just a 30- minute drive outside of Portland. Visiting Multnomah Falls, a 611-foot-tall roaring, awe-inspiring cascade of icy water, lets you experience the power and beauty of nature up close and with ease.

From the parking area its a 5-minute walk which takes you to the base of the falls.

For an even closer view, walk another several hundred feet up the paved trail to reach Benson Bridge, which spans the falls at the first tier’s misty base.

Oneonta Gorge:

Visit Oneonta Gorge and do waterfall hike. Remember to carry extra pair of shoes as you have to go in water for the hike and its cold but experience is so worthy. Because of some recent fire incident here we couldn’t make it here:( but you guys don’t miss it.
