10 Murals in Portland, Oregon

Carousel Events & Travel
1

We spent the day going from one side of Portland to the other. Biking, drinking coffee and checking out all the murals that we could find. A whole 10 + miles later and we got to view a large number of the murals on our list. Some murals that we had heard about before were a bit of a disappointment and others were just as good as we imagined. I hope you get a chance to explore and discover these 10 Murals in Portland.

There are sooooo many other murals that we passed, but these 10 were the top of our list. If you decided to bike around to find them make sure to take a map and check on it frequently so you don’t end up doing circles like we did a few times.

  1. Cats, Bunnys, Rhinos and more

    We had no idea what to expect when we searched up this mural. We read online about a kitty mural and decided we had to see what was in store.
    407 SE Pine St. Portland, Oregon

  2. Arrows

    We stumbled upon this one right after we crossed over the Hawthorne bridge. We hadn’t planned it into the list of ones we wanted to find, though in the end it became a favorite.
    Corner of SE 10th Ave and SE Hawthorne Blvd.

  3. Everything is Everything

    This was top of my list. We did a couple circles looking for it and ended up finding it almost underneath the Tilikum Crossing. The mural is huge! I walked so far back to get it all in one portrait style shot. This image was shared on my Instagram here.
    Corner of SE Grand Ave and SE Division St

  4. Flamingos

    Whomp Whomp Whomp. One of the ones we were most excited about, one of the most disappointing. This one is almost completely covered by a little mobile coffee? shop.  I think we were both too annoyed to see what the place was actually selling but it was right in front of the flamingos and I think it is there to stay.
    525 NE 24th Ave. Portland, Oregon

  5. Hey, Girl

    Directly across from the flamingos is “Hey, girl”. Another one that wasn’t on the list but because it was in the same parking lot as the flamingos, why not share right. Now if only we could move that garbage bin.

  6. Keep Portland Weird

    Our hotel is right next to this one. Cars can park in front of it so the chances of you being able to get a shot in front of the wall is pretty slim but still a fun one to find.
    314 W Burnside St. Portland, Oregon

  7. Famous people and quotes

    One of my friends recommended that we check out House of Vintage. This mural is painted on the side of the vintage boutique, both are worth checking out.

  8. Rhino

    Another one that ended up being a favorite. There are parking stalls in front of this guy too, we went later in the afternoon/evening and had the parking lot practically to ourselves.
    1300 SE Morrison St. Portland, Oregon

  9. Keep Your Chin Up

    We didn’t end up looking for this one. We wanted to but totally forgot about it, if you look it up you might also want to check it out.
    2127 NE Alberta St. Portland, Oregon

  10. Large Banana

    Another one we didn’t see but would have done too, if we didn’t already exhaust ourselves with the other eight. This banana spans the wall of a building and looks like it would be worth visiting.
    1125 SE Division St. Portland, Oregon

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
