Portland is a city we always wanted to visit and before we visited, we did some research into the best things to do with kids in Portland, Oregon to ensure we had some fun activities planned for our son. We would be coming off the back of a road trip to Yellowstone and we all needed downtime. So, in this post I’m sharing with you 5 awesome things to do in Portland with kids that we enjoyed, give you a few other ideas for family-friendly activities in the city, and some information about getting to the city, where to stay and places to eat with kids in Portland.
With its natural beauty, abundance of wildlife and something surprising around every corner, Yellowstone National Park is a destination we, as a family, highly recommend. After booking our trip, next on my mind was what to pack for visiting Yellowstone. In this post I’m sharing with you our Yellowstone packing list to help you prepare for your own visit in summer. I’ve even put together a free printable to help you get ready for your own visit to Yellowstone.
For many years, Yellowstone National Park was top of our bucket list. Having seen a documentary about it, we knew one day we would visit. However, we had long thought of it as somewhere to go when our son was older. But, in 2016 we took a chance and, on a whim, booked flights, car hire and accommodation to make our dream of visiting this amazing place a reality. In this guide to visiting Yellowstone with kids I’ll tell you how to get there, where to stay and the best things to see and do in this unbelievable National Park.
While we were in Portland at the end of our USA road trip holiday, we were kindly given complimentary entry to Oregon Zoo in order to review it. In this post you’ll learn what we got up to in our Oregon Zoo review, and discover some hints and tips to make your visit to the Washington Park Portland Zoo a great one.
When investigating things to do in Portland with kids, I checked with the people in the know, members of some family travel Facebook groups, and many recommended we pay a visit to the Portland Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, or OMSI as it is also know. Here is our account of visiting OMSI with kids and whether it is worth it.
