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 Portland's surroundings by going to Sokol Blosser Winery (in Dundee), Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil) and Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville). And it doesn't end there: stop by Powell's City of Books, get to know the resident critters at Oregon Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Lan Su Chinese Garden, and get a dose of the wild on Volcano Lands - Private Tours.
