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.
Popular historic sites such as Columbia River Highway and Eastbank Esplanade are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Multnomah Falls and The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother. Step out of Portland to go to McMinnville and see Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, which is approximately 56 minutes away. Dedicate the 14th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, see the interesting displays at Portland Art Museum, stop by Powell's City of Books, and wander the streets of Northwest (Nob Hill).
