The Oregon Zoo in Portland is spectacular and even though it is raining this weekend, it might be a good time to go check out the penguins in their brand new pen – completed this last Thursday, the happy birds are all settled in and ready for you to come see them!
You can find more info on the zoo at their site: http://www.oregonzoo.org/
We highly suggest getitng a membership and supporting this amazing facility. Membership ranges from $49/year to $104/year and pays for itself quickly. It is a great place to come to visit animals, but also has some wonderful walking trails.
