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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and Eastbank Esplanade. Escape the urban bustle at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Forest Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Multnomah Falls (in Troutdale) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, hike along Wildwood Trail, head outdoors with Portland Timbers, and steep yourself in history at Columbia River Highway.
