…Going at the end of the summer sometime in September. The weather is still temperate and rainy season hasn’t started yet.
There are so many things you can do while in the Portland, OR area. If you like to hike, you can go to the Multnomah Falls. It has a spectacular breath-taking view. Jody recommends you take along your camera because you will want to capture this view and remember it always.
If you like the beach, you can visit Cannon Beach. Haystack rock is called that because, well, it looks like a haystack. Just like any beach community, there is plenty of shopping in the area. Not too far south from Cannon Beach is the city of Tillamook, known for its awesome cheese. You may even be able to find it in your local grocery.
Other sites within the city limits to not miss are the International Rose Test Garden. The roses are gorgeous. You can take a group tour or ask for a tour guide brochure to walk you through and learn some of the history behind the various parts of the gardens.
The Oregon Zoo in Portland is a nice clean little zoo you can see in a day.
These are just a few of the sites you can see in and around Portland. Next time, Jody Victor will explore the shopping musts in Portland.
