Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Lewis And Clark National And State Historical Parks and Flavel House Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Oregon Garden and Horsetail Falls- Columbia River Gorge. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portland: Oneonta Gorge (in Cascade Locks), Vista House (in Corbett) and Silver Falls State Park (in Sublimity). There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and stop by Powell's City of Books.

And it doesn't end there: take a peaceful walk through Muir Woods National Monument, enjoy the sea views from Point Reyes Lighthouse, do a tasting at V. Sattui Winery, and savor the flavors at The Hess Collection Winery & Art Museum.
