day 1 | we pick you up from the airport and take you back to your temporary home for the week. meet your fellow co-mads, sip on some drinks, enjoy some snacks and relax…but don’t get too comfortable. we’re just in time to catch the annual oregon brewers fest! yes…we planned this perfectly.
day 2 | we’ll have breakfast at home before heading out to sample an elixir that’s dear to portland’s heart. you’ll have a chance to experience the finest coffee on this one of a kind tour. then, we’ll spend our afternoon kayaking or paddleboarding on the willamette river. later, we’ll visit a brewery who donates all profits to charity…only in portland. so, drink up! as if we couldn’t get any more socially conscious, we’ll enjoy dinner at a delicious mexican restaurant who supports local organizations that focus on social justice.
day 3 | our day will be full of community impact and natural beauty. after meaningful volunteer efforts, we’ll drive up to multnomah falls for an easy hike and to visit one of the best kept secrets of the area. we’ll have a dinner together at a nonprofit pub with a social mission. later that night, there will be an optional event…portland’s motto is “keep portland weird” and we are determined to show you why.
day 4 | we’ll enjoy breakfast while working on an at-home community impact project. then, the portland art museum is a creative way to start our day. we’ll have lunch at a local staple and then start roaming the city, exploring the nooks and crannies while popping into interesting boutiques and coffee shops with character. we’ll reconvene for dinner at a hipster hotspot.
day 5 | pip’s original doughnuts put the “sweet” in bittersweet on our last morning together. after indulging, we will take you to the airport and say goodbye. all good things really do come to an end after all.
