A day trip to Gramado / Canela has been mentioned before I think.
Also maybe a trip to the south of the city - Ipanema, for a nice sunset walk, or a bit further - Lami, about 30km south of the centre, also for a nice sunset walk, a little less crowded.

As it is a long drive from PA or gramado/Canela area, most visitors to Rio Grande do Sul avoid visiting the missions in the north, although the well preserved mission in Sao Miquel is a known spot.

Apart form visiting the typical places in the town, you can go to Gramado and Caracol´s Park in Canela .
Gramado is a german village in Brazil. One person who does not whre he is, would think he´s at Tirol or something similar. Very surprising.

so many memories

The Praça Shiga is a not common touristic route in Porto Alegre, but I can assure that it is a wonderful place to go and have fun. You can do a picnic and see all the beautifulness of this place.
