Romance can be found all around Portland, Oregon. There is almost no end to the romantic activities found here. Romantic options include quite hikes, fine dining, intimate bars, upscale theaters, and stunning parks. Trying to decide where to take some one for a romantic time in Portland can be confusing and that is why we have narrowed it down into just 10 romantic activities. 

We could have picked well over 10 romantic hikes, but instead included the most romantic one Multnomah Falls. Portland is home to many spa options and we include the top two based on intimacy and relaxation, Common Ground Wellness Center and Blooming Moon Wellness Spa.

Portland, Oregon happens to have some of the nicest movie theaters around and again two of them made our list, Cinetopia and Living Room Theater. 

If you find yourself wanting to all of these then head out to the Edgefield where you can watch a movie, have a romantic dinner, enjoy a cozy wine bar with live music, and more.
