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.
Get in touch with nature at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Sokol Blosser Winery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and Eastbank Esplanade. Change things up with a short trip to Multnomah Falls in Bridal Veil (about 46 minutes away). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Pittock Mansion, meet the residents at Oregon Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden, and appreciate the history behind Oregon Holocaust Memorial.
