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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Willamette Valley as well as Portland Saturday Market. Visiting Mount Hood and Little Zigzag Falls will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Willamette Valley Vineyards and Starvation Creek State Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portland: Silver Falls State Park (in Silverton), Cannon Beach (Haystack Rock & Hug Point State Park) and Phelps Creek Vineyards (in Hood River). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, and admire the natural beauty at International Rose Test Garden.
