City of Roses

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Portland: Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (in McMinnville) and Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil). There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Oregon Zoo, trek along Forest Park, and surround yourself with nature on Volcano Lands - Private Tours.

Oregon travel guide

4.5
A land of many faces, Oregon is at once a state of rugged rocky coastlines and deep forests, as well as vibrant cities and small towns packed with award-winning restaurants and trendy shops. With nearly half of its land covered by dense fir, redwood, and pine forests, the state protects varied plant and animal life inside three national parks. In addition to pristine waterfalls, beaches, and lakes perfect for a holiday in nature, Oregon also offers numerous urban tourist attractions. Portland, the state's largest metropolis, notably includes more breweries than any other city in the world, and its central location makes it an ideal base for day trips to Oregon's emerging wine region and many parks.
