A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
For shopping fun, head to Powell's City of Books or Portland Saturday Market. Escape the urban bustle at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Cannon Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Penner-Ash Wine Cellars (in Newberg), Cannon Beach (Haystack Rock & Ecola State Park) and Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville). There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Multnomah Falls, take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, tour the pleasant surroundings at Oregon Zoo, and trek along Forest Park.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Portland trip itinerary planner.
