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.
Explore hidden gems such as Columbia River Highway and Astoria Oregon Riverwalk. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cape Meares Lighthouse and Oregon City Municipal Elevator. Venture out of the city with trips to Prehistoric (in Lincoln City), K&M Wines (in Carlton) and Hood River (Cathedral Ridge Winery, Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum, &more). The adventure continues: do a tasting at Willamette Valley Vineyards, examine the collection at Portland Art Museum, make a trip to Alberta Street, and admire the verdant scenery at Willamette Valley.

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and Houston Museum District. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and Glenwood Cemetery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (in Anahuac), Fire Museum of Texas (in Beaumont) and Galveston (The Seawall, East End Historic District, &more). Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of George Ranch Historical Park, walk around Memorial Park, see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and gain insight at Rice University Campus.
