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.
Kids will enjoy Haystack Rock and Powell's City of Books. Get out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Cannon Beach (Ecola State Park & Cannon Beach) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, stroll around Tom McCall Waterfront Park, admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Oregon Zoo.
