Charleston

— 8 nights
Charleston is the capital and the largest city in the U.S. state of West Virginia, and the county seat of Kanawha County.

The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, get into the urban bustle at Culture Center, pause for some photo ops at West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance, and get engrossed in the history at West Virginia State Museum.

Explore Portland's surroundings by going to Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach Gallery, Ecola State Park, &more), Newberg (ArborBrook Vineyards & Adelsheim Vineyard) and Sokol Blosser Winery (in Dundee). Dedicate the 3rd (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, identify plant and animal life at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, get to know the resident critters at Oregon Zoo, and examine the collection at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
