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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Powell's City of Books and Pioneer Place. Take a break from the city and head to Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Ecola State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Cannon Beach (Cannon Beach & Haystack Rock), Del Rey Beach State Recreation Site (in Gearhart) and Astoria Column (in Astoria). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Multnomah Falls, get a sense of history and politics at Portland City Hall, take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Clear Creek Distillery.
