Portland, Oregon, welcomes your quirkiest habits with a friendly urban environment that's framed by numerous evergreens as well as the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. You could rely on a superb public transportation system to get around the walkable downtown but you need car rentals in Portland to take you further afield. You can then easily travel to admire the majesty of the 224-foot-high LaTourelle Falls or view wildlife at the Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve.
Flights to Portland land only 11.5 miles from the city center. You can book your rental cars in Portland either at the airport or in town. Try driving across any of the bridges spanning the Willamette, such as the ultra-modern Tilikum Crossing, for different vistas of the downtown skyline. If swimming and beaches are high on your agenda, take a trip to the more rural surroundings of Sauvie Island. Walton Beach is the main recreational spot, and if you like to sun au naturel, Collins Beach is partially clothing-optional. As a designated "Important Bird Area," the island offers viewing opportunities for lovers of geese, cranes, herons, and egrets. Go shopping for fresh corn, pumpkin, strawberries, tomatoes, and peppers at numerous farm stands. Spring for a van rental and your entire group can drive through the Historic Columbia River Highway. Depending on how far you travel, you'll enjoy scenic waterfalls, the Bonneville Dam and Cascade Locks, and Crown Point, which offers vistas of the river and the gorge it carved out.
