"Portland" Oregon Things to Do Tip by Easty

Oregon Things to Do: 329 reviews and 609 photos

  Columbia River Bridge on I-5
by Easty

Portland is the largest city in Oregon. It is also the most popular destination as well. Known best as the Rose City, Portland has many nice gardens to visit. It is also famous for its view of Mount Hood. Portland is a nice clean well organized city. At the time I was in Portland, it was the height of the Rose Festival. Being that the weather was so good, there were many people at the Festival. Thus, there were massive traffic jams throughout the city. Being that it was the tailend of our vacation, we opted to visit the Columbia Gorge area instead of downtown Portland. It will be on my list of cities to return to.
