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.
Get some historical perspective at Pittock Mansion and Columbia River Highway. Get outdoors at Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and Mount Hood. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portland: Sokol Blosser Winery (in Dundee), Oneonta Gorge (in Cascade Locks) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at International Rose Test Garden, hike along Wildwood Trail, appreciate the extensive heritage of Eastbank Esplanade, and get outside with Portland Timbers.

For photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Portland travel route builder .

A town that survives on the sea, Newport's population of just over 10,000 supports a healthy commercial fishing industry.

Relax by the water at Gleneden Beach State Park and Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area. Venture out of the city with trips to Yachats (Yachats State Park & Yachats coastline) and Sand Master Park (in Florence). Next up on the itinerary: cruise along Oregon Coast Hwy and deepen your understanding at Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive Center.

Bend

An old logging town at the crux of the high desert and ponderosa pine forest, Bend melds a love of the outdoors with cosmopolitan flair.
Get in touch with nature at Smith Rock State Park and Deschutes River. Get out of town with these interesting Bend side-trips: Sisters (Sahalie and Koosah Falls, City of Sisters, & more). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, explore the striking landscape at Balancing Rocks, sample the tasty concoctions at Atlas Cider Co, and take a peaceful walk through Deschutes National Forest.
