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: Starvation Creek State Park (in Cascade Locks), Multnomah Falls (in Bridal Veil) and Hood River Lavender Farms (in Hood River). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, take in the dramatic natural features at Haystack Rock, don't miss a visit to Pittock Mansion, and contemplate the waterfront views at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

To find photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Portland trip itinerary planner.
