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.
Pittock Mansion and Eastbank Esplanade will appeal to history buffs. Head to Powell's City of Books and Portland Saturday Marketfor plenty of shopping. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portland: Timberline Lodge and Ski Area (in Timberline Lodge) and Cannon Beach (in Cannon Beach). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden, steep yourself in history at Columbia River Highway, identify plant and animal life at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, and take a peaceful walk through The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother.
