RV Trip to Portland

RV Trip to Portland
From the striking high desert in Central Oregon, to the spellbinding Oregon Coast and everything in between, the state of Oregon is bursting at the seams with funtastic places to visit. But no place is quite as spectacular as the city of Portland. There’s just something about Portland that beckons you to come hither. And come hither you will. You’ll come so you can delight in the whimsical, bizarre, weird, wild, outrageous and yet totally comfortable and down-to-earth vibe that you’ll find in Portland. And whether you stay for a week or a season, you’ll find yourself wanting to come back for more.

So just what is it about this city that is so intriguing? For starters, it’s one of the hippest, most creative and eco-friendliest cities in the U.S. It’s got a thriving arts, theater and film scene that will appeal to all creative types. Some major televisions series are filmed in Portland including Leverage, Portlandia and Grimm.

You’ve got special dietary needs? Well, you’re in luck because special diets are all the rage in Portland! Alternative foodies will appreciate the way Portland restaurants and food carts embrace veg-friendly, allergy-friendly, paleo-friendly and gluten-free diets. Speaking of food carts, you can’t throw an eco-friendly, disposable bamboo spoon very far in this town and not hit a food cart. There are literally hundreds of food carts spattered all over the city with a colossally diverse variety of foods. You could easily spend a month in Portland eating only at food carts and still not visit them all. Did I mention that it’s a haven for microbreweries and wineries yet? Yep, Portland’s got tons of those too. Cool shopping districts with boutique stores? Got it! Plus there’s no shortage of awesome places to buy your food like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, food cooperatives and local farmer’s markets.

And beyond all of the artsy and foodie stuff, Portland is a great place to explore the outdoors. It’s a very bike-friendly city, so pedal pushing RVers could do their touring on bike. The city of Portland features miles and miles of trails within city limits for hiking; several outcroppings for rock climbing; and tons of parks for outdoor recreation of all kinds. Those wanting to explore the outdoors outside of city limits are going to be in awe of the offerings within a three-hour radius including Mt. Hood, the Oregon Coast, Multnomah Falls, Mt. Saint Helen’s, Ape Caves, Hood River and Bend, Oregon to name just a few of the nearby attractions.

So now that you decided to make a beeline for Portland, where do you park it once you arrive? Luckily you have your pick of several RV parks located close to all of the action including Jantzen Beach RV Park, Columbia River RV Park, Rolling Hills RV Park and Portland Fairview RV Park.
