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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: The Dalles Murals (in The Dalles), Cannon Beach (Hug Point State Park, Haystack Rock, &more) and Astoria Column (in Astoria). Dedicate the 4th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at International Rose Test Garden, admire the sheer force of Multnomah Falls, stop by Powell's City of Books, and get to know the resident critters at Oregon Zoo.

The City of Lakes

Located on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis salutes the state's love of the outdoors with numerous lakes, wetlands, creeks, and waterfalls--many connected to one another by a national scenic byway great for sightseeing.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Minneapolis: Extreme Sandbox - Minnesota (in Hastings) and Saint Cloud (Munsinger Gardens, Clemens Gardens, &more). And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at Mall of America, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake of the Isles, get your game on at Game Show Battle Rooms, and get engrossed in the history at Mill City Museum.

For reviews, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Minneapolis journey planner.

Fly from Portland to Minneapolis in 6.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Portland to Minneapolis due to the time zone difference.
