I can’t remember if I had mentioned it here or not (I probably did, who am I kidding..because Portland is awesome!), but after we got married we went on a little trip up to the beautiful Northwest. Our first stop was Portland. Chris and I have been dying to go to Oregon and Washington for the past few years because we both see it as somewhere we just NEED to live (asap). So our “mini-moon” was a perfect time to go! We flew from Bakersfield to Portland (which was awesome..not a fan of having to fly out of LA) the Tuesday after our wedding – and spent the first 3 days of our trip in Portland.
We stayed in downtown Portland in a super adorable hotel called Hotel Modera. This was our view from the 5th floor room:
Best part? There were outdoor firepits on the patio. And since the hotel has a fabulous restaurant as part of it, we were able to eat and drink out by the fire (luckily for us, it wasn’t raining!). It was just perfect.
Deschutes was rad, from the decor to the beer. Their food was AMAZING – I wanted to try so many things, but alas, we could not. We had some beer samples and I got a large glass of the Black Butte XXI. Oh and their sweet potato fries are a must!
Next up, Seattle!
