Portland Off The Beaten Path: 132 reviews and 304 photos


While you may not think the Oregon Zoo is off the beaten path, it really can be,
Besides being a pretty well rounded zoo, that I rather enjoy it offers something else.
That's right, smack dab in the middle of the zoo they have a concert venue during the summer months.
Late June through the end of August on any day of the week, but typically weekdays. You can bring a picnic basket, blanket and a bottle of wine and camp out on the grass to some great music.
While they range in music - world music, Hawaiian this year has Susan Vega and some swing too.
Great mid week escape in Washington park.
