Portland

— 8 nights

City of Roses

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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Cape Meares Lighthouse and Fort Clatsop National Memorial. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fort Vancouver | National Historic Site and Columbia River Maritime Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portland: Cannon Beach (Ecola State Park & Cannon Beach), Astoria (Astoria Column & Flavel House Museum) and Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville). There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Timberline Lodge and Ski Area, admire the natural beauty at Lan Su Chinese Garden, examine the collection at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and take in the dramatic scenery at Multnomah Falls.
