Holidays in Portland

This area is populated by 600,000 people.

It can be found 70 kilometres from the state capital, Salem, and 20 kilometres from Damascus.

An outing to the Hollywood Theater or the Children's Museum is a great opportunity for a bit of quality time with the family. If that isn't enough to wear the young ones out, why not visit Oaks Amusement Park and North Clackamas Aquatic Park as well?

You don't have to be a youngster to enjoy a trip to the Oregon Zoo! Both young and old will have lots of opportunities to admire its interesting animals through a series of well-thought-out exhibits.

Do you and your pals enjoy a cold brew or two? Enquire about tours and pick the brains of the master brewers at the Uptown Market.

From checking out what's under the hood to witnessing what the finely-tuned machines can do on the track, the World of Speed has enough high-speed action to satisfy any motor enthusiast.

Wine enthusiasts should spend at least a day exploring this fertile area's picturesque vineyards. A selection of delicious drops are on offer at the Oak Knoll Winery and the Cooper Mountain Vineyards. The St. Josef's Winery and the Tualatin Estate Vineyard are two other well-known stops where you'll get a deeper understanding of the region's wine industry.

This region takes its plant collecting seriously, so there are a number of places where you can go and learn all about botanic species from both regional and international landscapes. A wander through the inspiring gardens at the International Rose Test Garden and the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is not to be missed. For those who are more devoted, the Peninsula Park Rose Garden and the Leach Botanical Garden also have some nice floral displays.

From kicking a ball around to simply flopping down on the grass, there's always a reason to head to an urban oasis like the Portland Japanese Garden or Pioneer Courthouse Square. Also consider plonking yourself down and whiling away an afternoon at Tom McCall Waterfront Park or Grant Park.

No matter if you want to know the most popular cafe or what to do after dark, you’ll find the information you need at End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center or Hillside Park Community Center. Sellwood Community Center and Portland Temple Visitors' Center are two more good places to get the inside scoop on what to see and do around town.

You won't be disappointed by the swirling spectacle of Multnomah Falls and Oneonta Gorge. The endlessly flowing water at Willamette Falls and Wahkeena Falls is also quite amazing.

Do you find it impossible to imagine taking a trip and not spending some time near the water? Cannon Beach beckons!

Slip on some comfy shoes and get set to go on an adventure. There are numerous nature reserves in this area that are just waiting to be explored. The clean air and natural surroundings at Mount St. Helens and Hoyt Arboretum are as invigorating as it gets. For those who haven't yet fully recharged, World Forestry Center and Cook Park are a couple more worth checking out.

Ask the staff at the Museum of Contemporary Craft or the Oregon Rail Heritage Center about special happenings. With so many captivating exhibits, you'll want to ensure you don't miss out. Museum nerds also need to check out the Canby Depot Museum and the Portland Police Museum.

From the design of different ships to the instruments found inside the hull, the intriguing displays at the Oregon Maritime Museum and the Oregon Maritime Center and Museum will appeal to anyone who's interested in the seven seas.

The marvellous world of science never ceases to captivate us. Broaden your knowledge on the latest and greatest in innovation and technology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and Mt Hood Community College Planetarium. For even more mind-blowing exhibitions, add Haggart Observatory and C & K's Flower Garden to your schedule of discovery.

Our big blue planet is home to an incredible variety of living things. See some of the earth's more exotic beings with a trip to the World Forestry Discovery Museum.

In a city flush with terrific art collections, the Portland Art Museum and the Attic Gallery manage to stand out from the bunch. You should also check to see what exhibitions are being held at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery and the Blackfish Gallery.

Step back in time and discover the events and characters that have contributed to this region at the Oregon Historical Society Museum and the Oregon Jewish Museum. The Museum of the Oregon Territory and the Wells Fargo History Museum are also worth a trip for an even deeper insight into days gone by.

Do you want to see some historically significant attractions? An excursion to the Portlandia or Pittock Mansion will leave you with a greater understanding of Portland's days gone by. If that doesn't satisfy the history fanatic in you, keep going to Portland City Hall and Portland Building.

Sellwood Bridge and Hawthorne Bridge have traversed the waterways of Portland for what seems like an age, so the least you can do in return is pay them a visit. They aren't alone. Burnside Bridge and Steel Bridge have also been awaiting you since the days of yore.

Take an excursion to Vancouver National Historic Reserve, a structure that once played a vital defence role, and imagine the battles that its time-scarred walls endured lifetimes ago.

Those interested in the city's religious heritage should check out Grotto and St. James Lutheran Church. Would you like an even deeper look into Portland's spiritual identity? Continue on to Old Church and First Immanuel Lutheran Church.

They're unlikely to be splashed across the front page of a glossy travel magazine, but the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and the Live Laugh Love Glass are still well worth a look. Morrison Bridge and Lovejoy Fountain are some other choices.
