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 out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Pumpkin Ridge Zip Tour (in North Plains), Vista Balloon Adventures (in Newberg) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). There's much more to do: take a memorable tour with Willamette Jetboat Excursions, look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, see the world from above with Envi Adventures, and get outside with Portland Timbers.

For ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Portland trip itinerary planner.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Hood River.
