We made it to Friday babes! I’m headed down to Southern Oregon for the weekend (my best friend bought a house and it’s time to celebrate!), but in case anyone is going to be in the Portland area, I wanted to share some fun Portland date night ideas for every budget!

Having Fun in Portland
One of my favorite Portland date night ideas is to go wine tasting. There’s just something about sipping a glass of wine with that special someone…and is it just me, or does “wine tasting” just feel a little more fancy? Cerulean Wine is a really nice and not too spendy wine bar in NW Portland that I love. They have amazing wine, and really yummy appetizers too! Also, this post is totally not sponsored, I just love them! 🙂
Portland Date Night Ideas
- International Rose Test Garden – stroll through the rows of beautiful roses, bring a blanket and a picnic, and listen to a summer concert or just enjoy the view. It’s beautiful, and free!
- Drive in Movie – did you guys know there’s a drive-in movie theater west of Portland? Yeah, crazy right? I haven’t been, but if any of you have leave me a comment below!
- Traditional dinner and a movie – this ones on everyone’s list, and there are so many options in Portland! You can go to the traditional theater, or something like Cinetopia or Fox Tower. Then for dinner, check out any one of the amazing downtown Portland options. Maybe something with a view, like Departure, Portland City Grill, or even Noble Rot on the east side.
- Catch a local concert – Portland is pretty well known for it’s local music scene. On any night of the week, you can catch a local band playing at a fun bar. Stop in for a beer and some music and dancing!
