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.
Get some historical perspective at Pittock Mansion and Northwest (Nob Hill). Appreciate the collections at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and Live Laugh Love Art. Get out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Sokol Blosser Winery (in Dundee) and Willamette Valley Vineyards (in Turner). There's still lots to do: stop by Powell's City of Books, get to know the fascinating history of Eastbank Esplanade, steep yourself in history at Columbia River Highway, and take a stroll through Ladd's Addition.
