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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil), Astoria Column (in Astoria) and Cannon Beach (Haystack Rock & Ecola State Park). Dedicate the 24th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden, explore the activities along Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, hunt for treasures at Portland Saturday Market, and look for gifts at Powell's City of Books.
