Parks and natural areas abound, notably the International Rose Test Garden, Forest Park (the country's largest urban park), Portland Japanese Garden, Grotto's Ground and Gardens, and Washington Park. After getting your nature fix, explore the city by foot, on bike, on a Segway tour or even on a brewery tour. Refuel with a meal in the Pearl District and shop in the Hawthorne District. Next, see the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and Pittock Mansion. To get to spots outside downtown, you can look for Portland car rentals to take you to surrounding golf courses, Willamette Valley wineries, and Trillium Lake with ease. As you look for Portland hotels, consider which activities you're interested in so you can choose the best location.
Festivals and Events
With the Portland International Film Festival in February, Portland Rose Festival in June, and the Waterfront Blues Festival in July, the yearly lineup is impressive. The Oregon Brewers Fest in July, Portland Marathon in October, and Chocolate Fest in January are also worth attending. Additionally, with Portland Trail Blazers basketball games from fall to spring, regular concerts, farmers' markets and more going on all the time, there's never a boring moment.
