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.
Take a break from the city and head to Columbia River Maritime Museum and Cannon Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ecola State Park and Astoria Column. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Seaside Inverted Experience (in Seaside), Little Zigzag Falls (in Government Camp) and Cape Meares Lighthouse (in Tillamook). Dedicate the 4th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: get impressive views of Mount Hood, steep yourself in history at Pittock Mansion, experience rural life at Kruger's Farm, and stroll through Rockaway Beach Wayside.
