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.

There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden, see the interesting displays at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, get outside with Portland Timbers, and don't miss a visit to Pittock Mansion.

A genuine cowboy city, Cody is famous for its nightly rodeos and its proximity to the protected wilderness areas of the world's first national park, now designated as one of the country's World Heritage Sites.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Change things up with these side-trips from Cody: Yellowstone National Park (Observation Point Trail, Golden Gate Canyon, &more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Cody Dug Up Gun Museum, don't miss a visit to Pahaska Tepee, look for gifts at Cowtown Candy Company, and get engrossed in the history at Plains Indian Museum.
