10 Green Activities to Experience in Portland Oregon in the Fall

Being that I’m an Oregon local and being that Autumn is my favorite season, I thought we’d take an insiders look at what’s green and fun in my neck of the woods during the fall. Portland Oregon is an amazing place to visit anytime of the year, but in the Fall it’s spectacular; trees galore and they’re all on fire with colors. Not only that but we’ve got it all – urban space, rural places, and we’ve been named one of the greenest cities in America again and again. You’ve got nothing to lose, and only awesome eco-experiences to gain by traveling to Portland.

1) EXPERIENCE RECYCLED FASHION:

On November 14, 2009 the Junk To Funk Recycled Fashion Show is happening. This is a super cool showcase for wearable art made by artists who creatively use ‘trash’ in an eclectic, inspiring and humorous production. PLUS this event is at the Crystal Ballroom – a must see historic registry music and arts venue in Portland.

2) EXPERIENCE A GREEN PUB CRAWL:

Travel Portland put together an amazing eco-pub crawl for visitors that will introduce you to local eco-brew and local and fresh minded pub grub. This pub crawl winds through two southeast Portland neighborhoods and ends just across the Hawthorne Bridge from downtown. It’s totally manageable by bus too – and no worries, buses here run late.

START at Hopworks Urban Brewery (one of my absolute favorite pdx eco-brew pubs) and have some amazing food to kick off the night like locally harvested salads, cage free chicken wings and organic celery, pizza with homemade organic roma tomato sauce, and more! Of course have some organic beer to accompany your dinner.

Then make your way round to the Night Light Lounge, Imbibe, Lucky Labrador Brew Pub, and end the night at Roots Organic Brewing. For a full rundown of this eco-friendly pub crawl see the latest Portland Travel Magazine.
