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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area and Live Laugh Love Art. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Manzanita Beach and Rockaway Beach Wayside. Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Meares Lighthouse (in Tillamook), Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum (in The Dalles) and Cannon Beach Gallery (in Cannon Beach). And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, hunt for treasures at Portland Saturday Market, contemplate the long history of Columbia River Highway, and admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
