A Winter Night in Portland


Even though we live across the bridge, we haven’t spent a whole lot of time in Portland, exploring the city. A night at the Heathman Hotel meant playing tourist in our own city for the day!


We started our day off at the Brunch Box. It was definitely a great place to eat. They have breakfast all day and some awesome burgers! It definitely gives off the hipster vibe as well.

We then checked into the Heathman. It’s located right downtown, near great restaurants and awesome shopping. Our stay here was fabulous!


We then made our way to the Oregon Zoo to see the animals and experience the Zoo Lights! Graydon had so much fun seeing all the animals during the daylight, and then seeing all the lights at night.


The Zoo Lights at the Oregon Zoo are truly a Holiday must in Portland! The train takes you on a fun ride through the lights, the whole zoo is lit up, and it really helps you get into the Christmas Spirit.

Thank you to the Oregon Zoo for the tickets to the Zoo Lights – It really topped off the perfect night out in Portland.

To end the night we did some shopping in Downtown Portland.


The next morning we had our coffee and bagels, and made our way to Coco donuts. These donuts are definitely a must in Portland. My favorite is still pips, but these are a close second!
