Portland Day Trip: Columbia River Gorge and Cannon Beach

There is so much to see, do, and eat around Portland, Oregon but if you want to get out of the city, there are many amazing day trips you can take.

Since 2008 my friends and I have been road tripping to see our favorite band, Hanson. We’ve been to Milwaukee, Detroit, New Orleans, Kansas City (I wasn’t on that one), Memphis, and Tulsa (the ultimate Hanson fan pilgrimage). Some people think we’re crazy, but we look at it as a way to see new places and Hanson gives us the excuse to get together and travel (other non-Hanson related trips never seem to get off […]
