My Vacation: Part 1 (Portland, Halloweentown, Goonies)

On Wednesday I left for the Pacific North West for the first time, here’s what I did! 

When I first got to Portland, I snapped this picture in the airport.

I met my best friend, Dalton, from back home in Minnesota. After we checked into the hotel, we went to VooDoo Doghnuts which was just down the street.



After we got done eating ALL of the doughnuts, we walked across the street and took a photo with this iconic wall art. And yes, Portland is V weird…but in a good way!

We woke up early Thursday morning, picked up the rental car and hit up The Waffle Window for breakfast! 

I got the Chicken & Waffles. 10/10. Recommend! 

Had to stop by and take a picture of the Arlene Schnitzer Hall sign.

After that, we stopped by the Duck Store to buy some souvenirs and took a picture with this cool PORTLAND sign!

One thing I MUST recommend you see if you ever find yourself in Portland, is checking out the Multnomah Falls. 

I mean look at this!

Being a big fan of Twilight, I had to stop by the Carver Cafe! Where Bella & Charlie often had dinner! 

Before we headed out of town, Dalton recommended we had lunch at a German restaurant. Gustav’s in Clackamas, Oregon. Great beer and good food! I had the Oktoberfest.

This is one of the things I was most excited for on this trip, Halloweentown! 

It’s benny!

Every Halloween I have two movies I MUST watch, Hocus Pocus & Halloweentown. I was very excited to see it in person!

Another one of my favorite movies is the Goonies! So if this beach looks familiar, that’s why! Cannon Beach, Oregon.


Before we left Oregon, we swung by Astoria, where The Goonies took place. Here is the jail from the opening scene in the movie. Now it serves as the Oregon Film Museum.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Stop by tomorrow for part 2: Seattle & Denver.
