Spring and Summer Pacific Northwest Guide

Spring and Summer Pacific Northwest Guide

Here in Portland, Oregon, we’re huge fans of Spring and Summer. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the Pacific Northwest has one of the rainiest winters in the United States (we got close to 26 inches of rain just in December last year!), or maybe it’s the cloud-cover from October to April, but when Spring hits, Pacific Northwesterners are up and at ’em, getting outdoors and soaking in as much sun as we can, whether it’s out and about in the city, hiking through the Columbia gorge or hitting the beach. GiftTree’s Marketing and Design departments got together to create this sunny list of our favorite Spring and Summer activities in Portland and its neighboring towns. If you ever visit the Pacific Northwest, we hope you can hit some of these Spring and Summer attractions. Onward! Parks, Hikes and Outdoorsy Goodness Columbia River Gorge and Mt. St. Helens Hiking Trails – As temperatures rise, rains ebb and the sun begins to peak out from behind the clouds, many people from the Portland area head out into the outdoors and surrounding forests to explore and have fun. Within an hour or two drive from Portland, there are numerous hiking opportunities, two great places to explore are the Columbia River Gorge and Mount St. Helens. If you’re looking for gorgeous views of waterfalls, the Gorge is a great place to go. Trailheads can be found on both sides of the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington, however most waterfalls will be found on the South side of the river in Oregon. The hikes range from easy to strenuous and...
Spring Break: Portland, Oregon

Spring Break: Portland, Oregon

GiftTree’s headquarters and West Coast shipping hub is based just outside of Portland, Oregon in beautiful Vancouver, Washington. If you know anything about the Pacific Northwest, you know it rains. As you can imagine, the mention of spring and drier weather excites most residents of this region. However, the traditional timing of spring break can be a bit tricky in this neck of the woods if you’re not a fan of damp weather. Many people in this region will use spring break to head south to sunnier climates. If you don’t mind damp weather and do a bit of planning, there are still many great things to do in the Pacific Northwest during the usually drizzly spring break. Here are a few things to do in and around Portland for spring break. The Coast With the wet weather, heading to the coast might seem like a bad combination, however it can provide for some awesome storm watching. You probably won’t be able to get a tan, but spending a relaxing day indoors near a fireplace while the weather wails and huge waves pound the beach is the next best thing. Spring break also falls within the “off season,” so getting a good hotel deal shouldn’t be a problem. The drive starts at 90 minutes to Cannon Beach and Seaside, with a few other beach towns within a three-hour drive. Mt. Hood Just a short drive from Portland, Mt. Hood offers many options for recreation, and during this time of year some of the ski slopes are usually still open. With a number of ski areas to choose from winter...
