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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Portland: Seaside Museum & Historical Society (in Seaside) and Ecola State Park (in Cannon Beach). And it doesn't end there: stop by Powell's City of Books, get to know the resident critters at Oregon Zoo, explore the engaging exhibits at Portland Children's Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Forest Park.

To find traveler tips, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Portland driving holiday planner.

Divided into neighborhoods with distinct characters and cultural heritages, San Diego sits just north of the Mexican border and offers visitors a blend of tourist attractions, including a lively nightlife, diverse cuisine, and a thriving musical scene.
