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.
Columbia River Maritime Museum and Oregon Museum of Science and Industry will appeal to museum buffs. Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and Fort Clatsop National Memorial will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Hood River (Hood River Distillers Tasting Room & Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum), Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park, &more) and Grays River Covered Bridge (in Grays River). Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, examine the collection at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, take a peaceful walk through The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Eastbank Esplanade.
