Wonderful sushi! They also have a cheeseburger! The secret is most places in Portland have a special cheeseburger that usually is not on the menu - you have to ask. There is also the Ex Patriot across the street that is a really cool bar to grab a drink at before or after.

Just off of I-84 about 30 minutes east of Portland, this is one of the most scenic waterfalls on the entire west coast. We nearly lost this beauty last summer due to wildfires, but the firefighters put in everything they had and were able to save the forest immediately surrounding the falls and the historic lodge. This place is a major tourist attraction so a must see but please be prepared for crowds.

Breakside is our favorite brewery. They have multiple locations but we like to go to the Dekum location so we can eat at Podnahs Pit (BBQ) across the street. Although the food at Breakside is also good. This is kinda far from our place (15-20 Mins) but worth the trip.
