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.
Take a break from the city and head to Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and Sokol Blosser Winery. Get some historical perspective at Pittock Mansion and Eastbank Esplanade.
