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.
Bring the kids along to Portland Japanese Garden and Powell's City of Books. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, Haystack Rock, &more), Bonneville Lock & Dam (in Cascade Locks) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden, examine the collection at Portland Art Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at Portland Saturday Market, and get to know the resident critters at Oregon Zoo.
