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.
Step out of the city life by going to Volcano Lands - Private Tours and Wintler Community Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Alberta Street and A Nose For Wine Tours. Step out of Portland with an excursion to Mt. Hood Meadows in Parkdale--about 1h 25 min away. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Northwest (Nob Hill), relax and rejuvenate at Spa Sasse, browse the different shops at Clackamas Town Center, and snap pictures at Tilikum Crossing.

A land of many faces, Oregon is at once a state of rugged rocky coastlines and deep forests, as well as vibrant cities and small towns packed with award-winning restaurants and trendy shops. With nearly half of its land covered by dense fir, redwood, and pine forests, the state protects varied plant and animal life inside three national parks. In addition to pristine waterfalls, beaches, and lakes perfect for a holiday in nature, Oregon also offers numerous urban tourist attractions. Portland, the state's largest metropolis, notably includes more breweries than any other city in the world, and its central location makes it an ideal base for day trips to Oregon's emerging wine region and many parks.
