Summer has passed and fall is here in full force! The leaves are changing color and fluttering to the ground, it's raining more often than not, and our sunglasses and ever-fashionable tank tops have been replaced with thick scarves and sweaters. Although we're thankful for the occasional hot summer day, we Portlanders know how to get down with autumn!
Located just northwest of the city, Sauvie Island is a popular escape for many during the fall months. You can pick your favorite pumpkin to carve at the Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch or try not to lose your way in the Haunted Corn Maze. Spend the day at Powell's City of Books, a true Portland staple, which offers shelter from precipitation and thousands of books for everyone to appreciate. With the weather cooling down enough to enjoy a steaming latte, the plentiful coffee shops scattered around Portland are bustling with natives drying off from the rain... because we know better than to use umbrellas!
Slip into your rain gear and go for a romp in the classic Portland rain, or cozy up in front of your fireplace with a warm blanket and a mug of cocoa, because fall has arrived!
