Girls Trip to Oregon
One of our first stops on our trip was Pine State Biscuits, which I’ve listed in an Oregon Eats post here.
After breakfast, we headed straight to Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
Oregon: Where We Ate
Day 1: Fat Head’s Brewery
Day 2: Screen Door, Pinolo, & Pok Pok
Day 3: 10 Barrel Brewing Co. & Blue Star Donuts
There’s a small souvenir shop 30 minutes away from Cannon Beach that sold Goonies merchandise. We thought there would be a wider selection, but they only had a few things. After Astoria, we made our way to Washington.
Once we finally arrived in Washington, we parked & checked in for our reservation at the Space Needle restaurant. Once we got seated, I felt super nauseous because I didn’t know it was a revolving restaurant & I have motion sickness so I couldn’t even look out the window ): It was an unpleasant dining experience for me.
After dinner, Jeremiah & I made our way upstairs to check out the view & take a few photos. There were just too many people up there so we didn’t stay very long. If I would ever go back to Washington again, I would definitely skip the Space Needle & do something else. I wasn’t impressed at all. It seemed so much cooler when I was a kid. (shrugs).
After the Space Needle, Jeremiah & I went to the Pike Place Market. We didn’t get the chance to walk around the whole thing because by the time we got there, a lot of the shops were closing up. It was kind of an unpleasant experience there as well because everyone was just everywhere, people kept pushing & shoving others, etc. It’s definitely a tourist spot. The market seems cute to shop for groceries, but other than that, I wasn’t that impressed by it. It honestly just reminds me of the markets back at home.
We stopped by the gum wall alley & took a few photos. Interesting alley, but super gross. lol.
First day in Washington wasn’t that great, but it’s okay. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
After Powell’s City of Books, we walked to Deschute’s Brewery & had dinner. We shared the grilled cheese sandwich (not pictured) & it was really good. We also got another beer sampler, but I didn’t really drink any of it because I was drinking tea since I had a headache.
