The Gracious Girl takes an #UberAdventure around Portland

Posted: Updated:

It’s always fun to have a friend in town and really show off Portland! So when I had a chance to take an #UberAdventure, I knew exactly who to call - my friend Liz.

I met Lizzie at the Portland Airport and we set out with a mission for a day of fun in Portland, all from an Uber and all for under $50.

It was great to not have to worry about driving. Especially because it’s hard to laugh and drive at the same time.

Our first stop was Mt. Tabor

Airport to Tabor $17

It wouldn’t be a day of adventure without exploring. To be honest, and I’m embarrassed to say, that it was our first time at the park.

We were both impressed with the beauty and the view over Portland was spectacular. A perfect place to take an out of town friend or Portland stay-cation.

Next stop Voodoo Doughnuts, of course.

Mt Tabor to Voodoo $12

We worked up an appetite, so of course we stopped at Voodoo for a bite. A sweet treat with my sweet friend from out of town. Win, Win!

Our adventure continued… you can see, we didn’t have any fun, not at all!

Final Destination shopping on 23rd

Voodoo to NW 23rd $6.00

It wouldn’t be a day in the city with Lizzie without some shopping. One of our favorite areas is Northwest 23rd Avenue.

When we were dropped off on 23rd we tallied our total to find that we came in well under our $50 budget.


We had $15 in our pocket, which means more for shopping. Which is never a bad thing, right?
