Portland
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.
Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at George C. Marshall House, then take in the spiritual surroundings of The Grotto - National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother, then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Tabor Park, and finally see the interesting displays at Freakybuttrue Peculiarium.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Portland vacation planner.

Gainesville to Portland is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Pacific Standard Time (PST), which is usually a -3 hour difference. When traveling from Gainesville in December, plan for much colder days and slightly colder nights in Portland: temperatures range from 45°F by day to 35°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Mon) to allow time for travel to San Francisco.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Step out of the city life by going to Alcatraz Island and Marin Headlands. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lands End and Walt Disney Family Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Mumm Napa (in Rutherford) and Francis Ford Coppola Winery (in Geyserville). And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, examine the collection at Cable Car Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Dominic Church, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Grace Cathedral.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, use the San Francisco trip itinerary planning app.
