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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and Rice NW Museum of Rocks and Minerals. Venture out of the city with trips to Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum (in Hood River), Sturgeon Viewing Pond and Interpretive Center (in Cascade Locks) and Schreiner's Iris Gardens (in Salem). There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Tilikum Crossing, view the masterpieces at Live Laugh Love Art, contemplate the long history of Columbia River Highway, and enjoy the sand and surf at Manzanita Beach.

For maps, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read Portland trip planner.
