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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother and Pittock Mansion. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock. Dedicate the 6th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, get to know the resident critters at Washington Park, look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, and take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden.
