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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Haystack Rock and Oregon Zoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil), Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach & Ecola State Park) and Seaside Inverted Experience (in Seaside). There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, don't miss a visit to Pittock Mansion, contemplate the waterfront views at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, and admire the natural beauty at Lan Su Chinese Garden.

To find topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Portland trip builder.
