Travel Guide: Portland

in Travel, January 8, 2018

Going to school in Eugene, Oregon can get pretty boring sometimes. Eugene is really small and honestly, there is just not too much to do; however, Portland is only 1.5 hours away! I can’t say Portland is my favorite city ever, but it is a really nice escape from Eugene. Portland has a lot of things to do and especially has a lot of different foods to try!

Here are some great restaurants and drink places to check out next time you’re in Portland.

Drinks:

  • Tea Bar: Pearl Milk Tea. Boba. Tapioca Tea. I don’t really care what it is called all I know is that it is freaking delicious and I am obsessed with it. This place is so cute and so clean. Some may say it is “aesthetically pleasing.” The teas are to die for! I have had  a lot of pearl milk tea in my life, but this has got to be my favorite. I have tried the Lavender Milk Tea and the Matcha Milk Tea. Both are amazing, but the matcha has to be my favorite!
  • Tilt: Who doesn’t love a burger and some fries? I mean I don’t eat meat anymore, but if I did, I would definitely get a burger from this place. Tilt has a really cool industrial vibe and seems like the classic burger place. This is one reason I love Portland…every restaurant has its own theme! I went here recently with my friend and just got fries. We ordered a large and a regular and they did not disappoint. The amount of fries was unreal and the taste was amazing! If you are a fry addict like me, go get you some fries from Tilt.
  • Peaks Coffee: I’m not a huge coffee drinker, but I’ll go anywhere to find a cute new coffee shop and order some matcha! Peaks Coffee is a really tiny coffee shop, but it is really well decorated. I think decorating with plants makes a place seem so much more clean and adorable. The sign they have on the wall is all over Instagram and I understand why! Coffee places should be for conversation and not for technology! Lets make that a thing from now on!

I hope you found this helpful and I hope you try all three of these delicious places! Let me know if you’ve ever visited Portland and where you have eaten or enjoyed a drink.
