Get outdoors for a little fun this holiday season! Teresa Bergen, author of Easy Portland Outdoors, joined us to share some great activities for holiday adventures in, around and near the Rose City!

  • Snow tubing on Mount Hood: Either daytime or cosmic tubing at night with black lights and music.
  • Snowshoeing on Mount Hood: If you stay overnight at Timberline, you can take ranger-led snowshoe treks, including on full moon nights.
  • 8th Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater 5K Run/Walk: At Road Runner Sports in Tualatin on December 21. It raises money for CDH, a birth defect
  • Ugly Christmas Sweater Goat Yoga at Beaver Lake Stables: Combining two popular activities – wearing ugly sweaters and doing yoga with goats. Prizes for ugliest sweaters, hot chocolate, in decorated barn. Dec 22
  • Whale watching on the Oregon coast: If you like it this year, think about signing up for training as a volunteer whale spotter for next year.
  • Grotto Festival of Lights: Half million Christmas bulbs strung through the wooded property, cider, petting zoo, hot chocolate. When it gets too cold, pop inside to hear one of 150 regional choirs singing.
