Outdoor concert venues and amphitheaters to visit this summer

Music lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike have a wealth of options when it comes to hearing music live and outdoors.
Portland concertgoers can make a four-and-a-half hour drive to dance to sweet tunes as the sun sets behind a gorge. There’s also the option 30 minutes away to sit out on a lawn with friends as big artists rock out. Either way, making it to an outdoor show is a must every summer for many people.
On this week’s episode of Peak Northwest, we chat about a few of the many outdoor concert venues in the region.
Here are some highlights from this week’s show:

McMenamins Edgefield brings big name acts to a Troutdale lawn where concertgoers can sit back and relax, without traveling too far from Portland.

McMenamins Grand Lodge is a new concert venue, similar to a smaller version of Edgefield with unbeatable sunsets.

Portland venues to enjoy without leaving the city.

The Gorge Amphitheater is one of the most breathtaking spots to enjoy live music and worth the longer drive.

Wear your sunscreen. And other tips and tricks to a successful concert experience outside.
