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.

Venture out of the city with trips to Astoria (Chief Comcomly Memorial & Astoria Column), Multnomah Falls (in Troutdale) and Starvation Creek State Park (in Cascade Locks). Dedicate the 25th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's more to do: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books and take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden.
