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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hug Point State Recreation Site and Silver Falls State Park. Get in touch with nature at Manzanita Beach and Fort Clatsop National Memorial. Venture out of the city with trips to Hood River (Mount Hood & Big Winds), Washougal (Cape Horn Overlook & Cape Horn Trail) and Schreiner Farms (in Lyle). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Rowena Crest Viewpoint, hike along Forest Park, admire the verdant scenery at Willamette Valley, and admire the sheer force of Starvation Creek Ridge Loop.
