Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area (in Pacific City), Willamette Valley Vineyards (in Turner) and Remy Wines (in McMinnville). The adventure continues: hit the slopes at Timberline Lodge and Ski Area, take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, see the interesting displays at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and steep yourself in history at Columbia River Highway.
