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.
Step out of the city life by going to Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Get a sense of the local culture at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and Live Laugh Love Art. Change things up with a short trip to Multnomah Falls in Bridal Veil (about 38 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, see the interesting displays at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden.

For more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Portland travel app .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Portland. In March, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 41°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to travel to Seattle.
