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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Powell's City of Books and Portland Japanese Garden. Step out of Portland with an excursion to Multnomah Falls in Bridal Veil--about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, see the interesting displays at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, admire the natural beauty at Lan Su Chinese Garden, and stroll around Hoyt Arboretum.

To see ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Portland trip planner.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Portland. In October, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Chattanooga.

Dynamo of Dixie

Once saddled with the reputation of being one of the country's dirtiest cities, Chattanooga now boasts a pedestrian-friendly downtown with a network of leafy waterfront trails and free electric shuttles.
Family-friendly places like Tennessee Aquarium and Lookout Mountain will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Mercier Orchards (in Blue Ridge), Booth Western Art Museum (in Cartersville) and G3 Adventures (in Rising Fawn). There's much more to do: Head underground at Ruby Falls, take in the pleasant sights at Snooper's Rock, take some stellar pictures from Rock City, and stop by The Spice & Tea Exchange of Chattanooga.
