To Do: April 2018

April is going to be a busy month for me- I'm attending a good friends wedding, heading to the beach for a couples retreat, and of course working hard at real estate now that the spring market is picking up!! I'm still going to fit in as many of the below activities as I can though! I hope you can get out there and enjoy spring as well!

Astoria, Oregon

I've been wanting to go to Astoria for months and months as a day trip from either Portland or Manzanita. It is only about an hour from Manzanita, and about 1.5 hours drive from Portland. Astoria is located right off the coast on the Oregon side of the Columbia River and is the cutest little town full of historic shops, restaurants, breweries and sight-seeing.

Neighborhoods: Goose Hollow

The Goose Hollow neighborhood in Portland sits west of downtown and just south of Burnside street. The neighborhood is more residential than some of the other neighborhoods in Portland, but is certainly not lacking in attractions, restaurants and things to do. Goose Hollow is still very walkable, with downtown being only a few blocks down the hill and NW Portland being right over Burnside.

Neighborhoods: Downtown Portland

Portland is a beautiful place, and many of the most iconic images of this gorgeous city come from Downtown Portland. From the tall downtown buildings to the waterfront of the Willamette River, the downtown area is really the heart of this city. There is great shopping, food and drinks, and amazing people watching. All of the action happens downtown, so hop on the Max or the streetcar and check out the sights!

Friday Five: Fall Fun in Portland

Here in Portland we are so so lucky to have so many fun activities to do in the fall. Our city becomes so colorful with all the leaves changing from green to yellow, orange and red. We are surrounded by farmland, which makes us a great destination to pick pumpkins, apples and taste wine. All of the below activities are on my fall bucket list (I've already done some!) and I'm dreading the day when all the leaves have fallen and winter arrives! We are in the prime time of fall, so get out there and enjoy!!

Portland Catio Tour

Two of my favorite things are cats and homes, so obviously a tour of cat homes (catios) is right up my alley. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the Portland Catio Tour last weekend, but one of my best friends Lauren was able to document the event and do a great blog post for me! Lauren is a fellow cat lover and my most crafty friend, so it was a perfect match. Enjoy!
