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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mount Hood and Willamette Valley. Head to Powell's City of Books and Esther Short Parkfor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portland: Little Zigzag Falls (in Government Camp), Timberline Lodge and Ski Area (in Timberline Lodge) and Fort Clatsop National Memorial (in Astoria). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, take in the dramatic scenery at Silver Falls State Park, and wander the streets of Pearl District.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Portland road trip planning tool .

October in Portland sees daily highs of 66°F and lows of 49°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
