PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Spring break started off rainy for many Oregon and Washington kids, but the weather is supposed to improve later in the week, which means there’s still time to enjoy outdoor activities. 

For people looking to make the most of some time outside, here are several ideas to keep you busy in the Northwest. 

Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival – The timing of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival aligns perfectly with spring break. The festival started March 18 and runs through May 1. Not only can kids and adults alike enjoy the beautiful tulip flower beds, but this Woodburn farm also features photo cutout boards, a children’s play area and cow wagons to pull kids around in.

Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area – Take a drive through the Columbia River Gorge and stop to enjoy the multiple waterfalls along the way. The Gorge has several hikes of varying length, bike paths, and historical sites. Multnomah Falls and the Vista House are a couple of the most popular sites to see. The Historic Columbia River Highway will lead to many destinations, but visitors can also check out the Washington side of the Gorge if they’re looking to avoid crowds. 

Mt. Hood Skibowl Snow Tube and Adventure Park – There’s still plenty of snow to enjoy on Mt. Hood and that means tubing remains open at Skibowl. Tickets are available for both adults and children and are sold for 1.5-hour sessions. Guests are asked to dress in warm layers.

The course is currently open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Portland Timbers soccer match – End your spring break in Providence Park. The Portland Timbers are taking on the Orlando City Soccer Club Sunday, March 27 at 1 p.m. The Timbers are only a few games into their season so far, so this could be a chance to keep your kids interested in the team throughout the year.

Topgolf – If a mini golf course is just a bit too small of a space for your family, Topgolf might be a better option. Topgolf is located in Hillsboro and has climate-controlled hitting bays, so even if the weather isn’t the greatest, guests will still stay comfortable during their visit. Guests can take aim at giant outfield targets and the balls will keep track of each person’s score. Topgolf also features a bar and restaurant. 

Columbia Springs Vancouver Trout Hatchery – Teach kids about the circle of life at the Columbia Springs Vancouver Trout Hatchery. The hatchery works with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to raise steelhead, rainbow trout and salmon. The hatchery says the salmon it raises are part of a statewide recovery plan to bring back the species.
